Description: Report presenting an investigation in the high-speed tunnel to determine the effect of leading-edge shape and section profile on the aerodynamic characteristics of two thin wings of aspect ratio 4. Lift, drag, and pitching-moment data are presented for a range of angles of attack and Mach numbers. Information about a third wing with an aspect ratio of 3, a taper ratio of 0.4, and a 4.5-percent-thick modified-hexagonal section are also provided.
