Description: Report presenting a partial-span wing tested to determine the cause of a flutter which had occurred in high-speed flight. Changes were made to the wing stiffness, location of the center of gravity of the wing, and the mass balance of the aileron. Results regarding the effect of wing changes on flutter, effect of aileron changes on flutter, shock-wave study, and static aerodynamic coefficients are provided.
