A flight investigation was made on a twin-engine transport airplane to determine the strains associated with the dynamic behavior of the wing during flights through rough air. Flights were made in clear-air turbulence for different wing fuel loads and for two speed conditions at altitudes between 3,000 and 4,000 feet.
