Abstract:

Transonic wind tunnel tests are reported on a 120th scale model of the Jindivik target aircraft for Mach numbers in the range 0.5 to 0.9. The purpose of these tests was to determine the effect of the addition of a flare pack to the lower rear fuselage on the lateral and longitudinal stability of the aircraft and on the tailplane and elevator effectiveness. The results indicate that the effect of the flare pack is very small and should not significantly degrade the stability or performance of the aircraft. Author
