Sound velocity of Aluminium

I will soon be in the process of ultrasonically inspecting the thickness of the fuselage of several old Bonanza Aircraft. Could anybody please supply me with the velocity of sound for 2024 Aluminium?

Thank you

...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field
