During the study of two axially opposed choked air jets, an unusual effect has been noticed with respect to the impingement plane of the jets. In spite of the fact that both jets were operating at the same pressure ratio, the impingement plane was not necessarily centered between the two nozzle exits. Under certain conditions, the impingement plane had several stable locations along the axis between the two nozzles.
