An all-wing aircraft is disclosed that has novel foreplane and depending aftplane, a center wing section and outer wing panel flying surfaces which cooperate aerodynamically to eliminate the need for conventional fuselage and tail structures. The foreplanes are strategically located to create a positive pitching moment which is sufficient to significantly reduce elevator forces and to balance the negative pitching moment induced by the outer wing panels and the downwardly extending aftplane units that provide static and dynamic pitch and yaw stability. A...
In an all-wing aircraft, the combination of: a center wing and foreplane section provided with a leading edge and a trailing edge, said center wing section being configured to define an airfoil between the leading and trailing edges thereof; a pair of outer wing sections each having a leading edge and a trailing edge, each of said outer wing sections being shaped to present an airfoil between respective leading and trailing edges thereof; means joining the outer wing sections to opposed sides of the center wing section in disposition such that the outer ...
