X-20 wing - Airfoil shape(s)
« on: June 17, 2017, 11:15:38 am »

The NACA airfoil representation for the X-20, X-15, and Space Shuttle are probably still classified, but I recently found the airfoil shape for the B-58, including the MOD information. I expected that to be classified also, so maybe there's a chance that these others are also published somewhere.

Does anyone have this info, or any suggestions as to how I might acquire it?

Thanks,

Tom

You can probably find what you are looking for at the UIUC Airfoil Coordinates Databasehttp://m-selig.ae.illinois.edu/ads/coord_database.html
