WEATHER FACTORS IN SUPPORT OF B-58 OPERATION

Lt. Col. Francis T. McHenry

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: Meterological support of the B-58 is similar to that furnished other jet aircraft. Takeoff data, temperatures, and winds aloft information, refueling area forecasts, terminal forecasts, and alternate forecasts are furnished as routine for normal training missions. Exception to this kind of support is encountered only in Mach 2 operation. Here particular attention is given to the forecast temperature profile and deviations from the standard atmosphere.
