The aircraft (20,50,60) combines a low aspect ratio lifting body (21) and a higher aspect ratio wing (30). Horizontal and vertical tail surfaces (26, 24) are connected to the rear of the lifting body (21) by one or more booms (23). The wing (30) is attached to the lifting body (21) such that it can be rotated about a spanwise axis (39) and it's aerodynamic center is located behind the aerodynamic center of the lifting body (21). The wing (30) contains adjustable surfaces (31, 32) to change the wing's camber for lift and roll control. A lever arrangement ...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.]1. An aircraft having a center of gravity and comprising:a lifting body having an aspect ratio less than two, a payload compartment and an aerodynamic center;a rotatable wing with an aspect ratio greater than three, said wing being rotatably connected to the lifting body rearwardly of the aircraft center of gravity, said wing having a wing aerodynamic center and being rotatable about a spanwise axis that is relatively near the wing aerodynamic center;said wing being rotatable in pitch relative to the lifting body;said wing incl...
