- A total of 197 hours of time histories of airspeed and altitude have been obtained on Lockheed Constellation airplanes flying between New York, N.Y. and San Francisco, Calif. during May 1946 and June 1946. Data for 130 hours were previously analyzed to determine the probability of attaining excessive airspeeds and Mach numbers and the results have been published. After the publication, data for additional 67 hours became available. All the data were obtained at altitudes less than 20,000 feet and under approximately the same conditions. The combined data have been analyzed to obtain the results given in the tables and figures contained herein. Based on the combined data, the probability of exceeding a given airspeed or Mach number is of the same order of magnitude as that given. The conclusions are, therefore, unchanged.
