But perhaps not from an aerodynamic perspective, as there could be some undesirable vortices forming at the angle. That's where an aerodynamics specialist would be appreciated...Sundog said:BTW, whoever made that image didn't really think through their wing fold mechanism. It would have been better to make the hinge line the same angle as the wing tip, from both an LO perspective and a space saving perspective.
Sorry, I hadn't taken a close look at the document. From Sundog's remark I wrongly infered that the wings could be folded both on the ground ("a space saving perspective") and in flight ("an LO perspective"). Of course if the LO aspect concerns only the grounded aircraft, then aerodynamics has nothing to do with the way the wings fold!!! :-[Jemiba said:Vortices forming in the hangar ?
I was going to reply but this doesn't deserve a response. Grow up, or get banned.BB said:Well you UK'ers must all be pretty dense if you think this technology isn't already available. Maybe in merry old England you still burn coal furnaces and live in the dark ages.
