Initial stage of downward flow of gas-sheared liquid film in a vertical rectangular duct was studied using brightness-based laser-induced fluorescence technique. Measurements were resolved along both longitudinal and transverse coordinates and time. The initial high-frequency waves which are formed at the inlet were found to be two-dimensional. These waves are promptly broken into localised horseshoe-shaped waves which merge downstream to form large-scale quasi-2D disturbance waves. Peculiarities of three-dimensional evolution of waves of different types were studied in a wide range of flow parameters.
