Description: Report presenting tests on a scale model of a four-engine cargo airplane, which was tested in the high-speed wind tunnel. The high-speed characteristics of the airplane, particularly the longitudinal stability and control in dives were investigated. Test results indicated that no important changes in longitudinal stability or controllability occurred until the speed exceeded the predicted maximum level-flight speed by more than 38 percent.
