An investigation has been conducted in the Langley 4- by 4-foot supersonic tunnel to determine the longitudinal stability and control characteristics of a model of a supersonic airplane configuration at a Mach number of 1.40. The model had a 40 degree sweptback wing with 10-percent-thick circular-arc sections normal to the quarter-chord line.
