This paper reports measurements of the chemical composition of exhaust from two aircraft turbine engines. The two engines are the F101, used on the B-1B aircraft, and the F110, used on the F-16C and F-16D aircraft. Samples were collected from each engine using a probe positioned just behind the exhaust nozzle. The measurements reported here were made at four power settings from idle to intermediate power. Exhaust composition measurements included carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, total hydrocarbons, and individual organic species. The principal focus of this paper is on the detailed organic species results.
