The effects of extensible rocket racks on lift, drag, and stability of a 1/10 scale rocket-boosted model of the McDonnell XF3H-1 airplane for a Mach number range of 0.60 to 1.34
Description: Report presenting testing of the transonic longitudinal characteristics of a model of the McDonnell XF3H-1 airplane. The model had a center-of-gravity location of 28.5 percent of the mean aerodynamic chord and a stabilizer setting of -5.91 degrees relative to the wing chord plane with extensible rocket racks. Results regarding Reynolds number, rocket-rack program, flight time history, trim, lift, drag, longitudinal stability, directional stability, and inlet pressure recovery are provided.
