Re: Armstrong Whitworth AWP.22 M-Wing SST

That is an astonishing design !!


I was going to ask where the wheels were, when the PDF finally opened. Despite appearances, the wing is entirely in one plane-- I thought it was gull-winged, or the outer panels cranked per Valkyrie...

I understand that it is an actual project, but it still has a real comic book appearance.

Yes - I realised when some of the other photos looked familiar.

The report indicates it worked as planned.
Well, with the caveat that drag was higher than a conventional swept wing. That likely would have killed it.
