speak as you will zone
A super elliptical wing-plan; but what was the roll-rate like?
One of the commenters said it couldn’t fly but I think it did. Roll rate would depend on flaps or ailerons, no? Forgive me – I’m a sailor, not a flier.
I am a sailor and have seen those planes on an aircraft carrier.
Right, Dave, so they worked. It’s just a question of gross weight v lift over drag I would think. If the numbers add up, then they fly [providing sufficient thrust].
Aircraft carrier eh? That would be fun lifting off and landing.
Throws a bit more light on it !
Did you really Dave? Was that before or after that bottle of Rum and your dream of you flying in your Maidenform bra?
