    Testing during the MET shot of Operation Teapot of destructive loads on aircraft in flight, to determine the structural responses and progression of damage to aircraft structures when subjected to the forces produced by a nuclear detonation. Three QF-80K radio-controlled drone aircraft were flown independently in a left-hand holding pattern at three different altitudes and positions to the blast. Because of the potential hazard presented by the use of aircraft, the number of observers was restricted. The lowest of the three aircraft was severely damaged and was lost.
