Abstract:

Any external aircraft modification has potentially far-reaching effects on the capability of the aircraft to succeed or fail in its mission. The authors take a systematic look at the effects that small changes can have upon the whole, with a series of examples that demonstrate why careful review of data or testing is often vital in the assessment of system modifications.
