Even at low surface-wind speeds of 5 - 7 Kt, the vortex can make ultralight flying uncomfortable.

In 1995, at the FAA's Technical Center in Atlantic City, New Jersey, a " Wake Vortex Flight Test" was conducted in reponse to the crash of USAir 427 ( airplane shown in video) This video includes the airplanes that participated in the tests as well as representative samples of flight test conditions. The video includes shots of each of the participating airplanes - the vortex generating B727, the vortex-encountering B737, and the T-33 chase plane. The video also documents wing-mounted smoke generators on the B727, and shows several test conditions, in which the B737 flies into the smoke-identified cores of the B727's wake vortices. The encounters are shown from the chase plane, the B737's cockpit camera, and the B737's tail-mounted camera.
