A series of thin, triangular plan-form wings has been tested in the model supersonic tunnel at Langley. The series consisted of eight triangular wings of vertex angles such that a range of leading-edge positions both inside and outside the Mach cone at the two test Mach numbers of 1.43 and 1.71 was obtained.
