    I am the vice president of the North East Ohio Storm Chasers (NEOSC)
organization which has been operated out of Akron, Ohio for the past 3
years. We have been researching weather from our point of veiw working
together with meteorologists out of southern Florida and now have come to a
point in time where help is essential.
    Simply put, I think that there is a lot of relevant data associated with
aeronautics research that has never been looked at in the realm of
meteorology. This is the data that I need at this time. Back in the late
60's or early 70's (was it?) I know that Northrop, Hughes, and G.E. Ft.
Wayne were all trying to make a progression from the bubble (or liquid) type
instrument clusters on their airplanes to the electronically driven clusters
that we see today in most aircraft. From what I gathered from educational TV
(sorry, as it is my only source) these clusters had a tendancy to
malfunction or act unpredictably at certain altitudes with the original
designs. The data that I'm looking for specifically is what altitudes did
this behavior start/stop and what exactly was done to fix this bug? And if
there was any other related phenomena please feel free to add it at will.

Thanks for your time,
