This report contains complete results obtained to determine the effects of compressibility at high Mach numbers on a one-sixteenth-scale model of the Bell XS-1 transonic research airplane and therefore supersedes NACA RM No. L7A03 which was previously prepared at the Langley 8-foot high-speed tunnel.
