The oblique wing is driven axially and rotated by means of a turret mounted on rails.
A two-stage earth-to-orbit transport comprising: an orbiter vehicle; a pair of boosters disposed at diametrically opposite sides of the orbiter, each having a deployable wing located on top of each booster along a longitudinal axis of each booster during launch and being movable into an oblique disposition after separation of the boosters from the orbiter vehicle; means for pivotally and slidably coupling each wing to each corresponding booster, the pivotal and slidable coupling means comprising for each booster a longitudinal track coupled to and center...
