Flight Investigation From High Subsonic to Supersonic Speeds to Determine the Zero-Lift Drag of a Transonic Research Vehicle Having Wings of 45 Degree Sweepback, Aspect Ratio 4, Taper Ratio 0.6, and NACA 65A006 Airfoil Sections
Description: Report presenting rocket-powered flight tests from high subsonic to supersonic speeds and at high Reynolds numbers to determine the zero-lift drag of a transonic wing-body and body-alone configuration. The configuration tested featured a wing of 45 degree sweepback, aspect ratio 4, taper ratio 0.6, and an NACA 65A006 airfoil section, and a body of fineness ratio of 10 and a frontal area equal to 6.06 percent of the wing-plan-form area.
