A reversible aerofoil comprises a central panel (10) with lateral panels (12A,12B) hinged to opposite edges. The lateral panels can be hinged so that either one overlies the central panel while the other is extended, thereby producing alternative mirror-image aerofoils. The lateral panels can be hinged so that they both overlie the central panel, thereby producing a stowed configuration. The shape of the panels is such that in the stowed configuration the profile of the outside surfaces of the lateral flaps match that of the central panel, thereby allowi...
1. An aerofoil, comprising a central panel and lateral panels hingedly connected at each side thereof, the central panel being arranged for rotation about a central longitudinal axis, the lateral panels on the two sides being of similar cross-section and the central panel being of symmetrical cross-section about a median plane passing through said central axis at right-angles to the panel, the cross-sections of the panels being such that either one of the lateral panels can be folded inwardly to lie against the central panel leaving the other lateral pan...
