Sorry guys, but your pulse isn't constant, neither is a count.

Yes, a large period of swing might help, but using the tools available, I don't see how you can prove anything.

You could try "Flying" by Henry Sutton, ISBN 0-340-71735-5.

It's the story of a (fairly!) typical LHR-JFK night stop on a British 747-400, seen from the perspective of a variety of crewmembers.
