The low speed aerodynamic characteristics of an 18 percent scale semi span jet flapped wing designed primarily for transonic maneuverability were investigated in the David W. Taylor Naval Ship Research and Development Center 8 x 10-Foot Subsonic North Wind Tunnel. These low speed characteristics were obtained to aid in determining if adequate STOL performance could be obtained by a high speed jet flapped wing, thus eliminating the need for additional high lift devices required solely for the landing and take-off modes of operation. The structure of this investigation provided a data basis for a jet flapped wing with and without a glove.
