A flight investigation was undertaken on a transport airplane to determine the effect of transient wing response in rough air upon acceleration measurements at the center of gravity of the airplane. Flights were made in clear-air turbulence between altitudes of 3000 and 4000 feet for two speed conditions and different wing weights.
