An investigation was conducted to determine the effects of a nacelle on the aerodynamic characteristics of a swept wing and the effects of sweep on a wing alone. The aerodynamic characteristics were determined from force and pressure measurements and tuft studies at Mach numbers of 0.13 to 0.61 for the wing-nacelle combination and at 0.13 to 0.70 for the wing alone.
