Abstract : The design and construction of a transonic wind-tunnel model has been completed. The 1/7.5-scale model can be equipped with an all-flying low-, mid-, or T-tail. A baseline, linear element wing and an alternate wing of identical planform, but with chordwise airfoil sections optimized for transonic cruise, have been manufactured. One row of pressures is located on each wing and on the horizontal tail. (Author)
