1994 VORTEX Raw Flight Data

The armored T-28 aircraft was flown by the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (SDSMT). The data from these flights were collected by SDSMT under agreement with the National Science Foundation (NSF) Lower Atmospheric Observing Facility Program. This dataset includes raw flight data for five T-28 flights flown during the 1994 Verification of the Origins of Rotation in Tornadoes Experiment (VORTEX) Project. There is an additional tar file containing the calibration tables.
