Description

Report discussing an investigation to determine the drag of a configuration with a body of fitness ratio 12 with stabilizing tail surfaces and a 12-percent-thick 30-degree swept-forward wing using the free-fall method. The drag oft he wing and the total drag were measured separately and compared. The swept-forward wing was found to greatly increase the effect of drag on the body-tail combination.
