During the early Cold War days when 17-year-old David Eagles applied to the Fleet Air Arm hoping to be a fighter pilot for his National Service, he little imagined the lifetime career that was to follow. After Flying Training with the US Navy and loan Service with the Australian Fleet Air Arm, he settled into Fleet Air Arm fighter pilot life. Selected to attend the Empire Test Pilots School, he progressed through Naval Test Pilot duties and was forced to eject from a Buccaneer during catapult launch trials. He joined British Aerospace and played a major part in the cockpit design and flight testing of the RAF s first fly by wire and swing wing aircraft, the Panavia Tornado, finishing a fascinating career by making the first flight of the EAP, the technology demonstrator for the new Eurofighter Typhoon."

It was early Cold War days when 17-year-old David Eagles applied to the Fleet Air Arm hoping to be a fighter pilot for his national service. He little imagined the career that would follow. After flying training with the US Navy and Australian Fleet Air Arm, he settled into Fleet Air Arm fighter pilot life. He progressed through Naval Test Pilot duties – where he was forced to eject from a Buccaneer during catapult launch trials – before joining British Aerospace and playing a major part in the cockpit design and flight-testing of the RAF’s first fly-by-wire and swing-wing aircraft, the Panavia Tornado. His other experiences include ditching a Firefly into the sea and the near loss of the first British Tornado prototype after a bird strike. Finally, after 6,000 flying hours in sixty different types of aircraft, Eagles finished his career by making the first flight of the EAP, the technology demonstrator for the new Eurofighter Typhoon. Vividly illustrated with photographs, documents and plans, this is a fascinating memoir of naval-flying and test-flying some of the world’s most iconic fighters.

Tornados cause more than one third of the total insured loss due to all natural hazards in the United States. The current design of civil engineering structures for wind loads is based upon model tests in low-speed boundary-layer wind tunnels that generate straight-line winds. Winds resulting from tornados are far from being simple boundary-layer types. Tornados are vortices with significant tangential and vertical velocity components as well as large pressure gradients. Assessment of accurate wind loads in tornados is the first step toward better design of structures that will save lives and reduce property loss. Several model tornado simulators have been tested to assist in determining the mechanism of simulation and important flow parameters that are required to assist in designing a prototype simulator that will be housed in the Wind Simulation and Testing Laboratory at Iowa State University (ISU). This paper focuses on the design process that led to the latest model simulator whose design will be used to build the prototype tornado simulator.
