AUG 30 1977 Surface Wind Monitoring System Checks For Wind Shear Shear is a sudden change of direction or velocity of wind at different altitudes, and produces hazardous flying. Federal Aviation Administration Capt. Bill Hitztala, left above, brings a DC-10 jumbo jet in to smooth landing while FAA Capt. Tommy Thompson watches gauges. Their plane is a simulator to test pilots on their ability to land and take off in wind shear conditions. At right is an anemometer, one of five mounted at Stapleton International Airport. They show wind direction and speed and transmit that information to a television screen. Credit: Denver Post, Inc. (Denver Post via Getty Images)
