Comparison of measured and predicted indicated angles of attack near the fuselages of a triangular-wing wind-tunnel model and a swept-wing fighter airplane in flight
Description: Report presenting measurements of the local flow angles near the fuselages of a triangular-wing wind-tunnel model and an F-86A-5 airplane in flight using airflow detectors on the fuselages. A comparison of the measured and predicted flow angles is provided. Results indicated that the accuracy of the predicted indicated angles of attack was not sufficient to eliminate the necessity of a flight calibration of a detector mounted on a fuselage.
