Second order statistical moments of new internal MHD wave in the ionospheric F region are investigated analytically by geometrical optics approximation. Degree of a curvature of a constant phase surface and the variance of an instant frequency measuring by experiment has been obtained for arbitrary correlation function of electron density fluctuations. Energy exchange between the internal wave and turbulent plasma flow is considered calculating the mean energy flux density in the first and second approximations. Numerical calculations are carrying out for both anisotropic Gaussian correlation function and power law-spectrum characterizing elongated plasma irregularities using experimental data of satellites and incoherent scatter radar observations.
