The initial series of wind tunnel tests which were designed to demonstrate the aerodynamic advantages of an advanced technology variable camber wing have been completed. These tests were conducted during twenty-four shifts of occupancy time at the NASA Ames 14-foot transonic wind tunnel between May 21 and June 15, 1973. The configurations tested consisted of the basic F-8, the F-8 with an advanced technology wing, the advanced wing with simple hinged leading and trailing edge flaps and various combinations of smooth, curved variable camber flaps. A summary of the test configurations and test conditions is presented.
