Description: Note presenting the end-plate effect of the horizontal-tail surface on the vertical-tail surface as theoretically studied by derivation of the flow corresponding to the condition of minimum induced drag and by solution of the usual lifting-line equations. The results obtained by the two methods were considerably different, indicated that the condition derived is not a close approximation to the actual condition.
