Abstract : A wing body model of an advanced manned interceptor was tested for subsonic force and moment data in a five-foot wind tunnel. A removable engine package contained twin internal airflow passages. Following the collection of force data both with and without the engine package, the inlets and exits of the ducts were instrumented with pressure rakes in order to determine the momentum loss and hence the drag on the model due to the internal flow.
