Normal-acceleration and airspeed data obtained from NACA V-G recorders installed in a two-engine type of transport airplane, employed in routine commercial operations on a north-south route in the central part of the United States from 1948 to 1950, are analyzed to determine the gust and gust-load experiences of the airplane.
