A supersonic aircraft design using compression lift for enhanced cruise performance. Each engine nacelle at mid-span has a vertical wedge at the nose which creates shock waves under the wings. The increased pressure behind the shock waves pushes up on the wings, creating compression lift. The second part of the process is trapping the shocks by some vertical surfaces. The inboard shocks are intercepted by a keel under the fuselage. This causes the reflected shock effect, which increases compression lift. The keel is just wide enough to store the main lan...
1. A supersonic aircraft including a body, two wings and two engine nacelles; each said nacelle extending below a said wing and located at part-span; said body including a fuselage and a keel; said keel disposed lengthwise below said fuselage; a main landing gear including two struts and two wheel bogies; each said strut pivoted at one end in a said wing substantially inboard of a said nacelle; each said strut carrying at its other end a said wheel bogie; after takeoff, each said strut pivoting upward, lifting a said wheel bogie toward said keel; said ke...
