The following shows MTP's IAC details of SOLVE flight.  The following images assume the viewer's screen resolution is set to 1024x768 pixels.


This flight exhibits a large amplitude wave event, more than 700 meters peak-to-peak (2nd largest for the DC-8 during SOLVE).  It occured at 80.5 ks, while flying at 12.5 km, 120 km west of the Norwegian coast.
