Greetings All -

I was at a swap meet over the weekend and bought a copy of the recently released (2008) "Radical Wings & Wind Tunnels - Advanced Concepts Tested at NASA Langley" authored by Joseph R. Chambers and Mark A. Chambers and published by Specialty Press. See:

Essentially all the photos are NASA but the variety is excellent and many I've not seen before. Check out the PDF links on the link above for a decent look at the contents. One of the interesting finds in reading thru the book was a photo of a wind tunnel test in 1946 of an oblique wing free flight model.

I'd say well worth adding to your library....

Enjoy the Day! Mark

Wish we had such swap meetings over here... ::)

The link doesn't work, Mark. Identification is required.

Is the oblique wing design the same as the ones attached below?
