Wing-flow-method measurements are presented from 0.47 to 1.15 Mach number of the longitudinal-stability and -control characteristics of a triangular wing of aspect ratio 2 equipped with a constant-chord flap. Comparisons are made with wind-tunnel and free-flight-test results as higher Reynolds numbers to determine to what extent the data re affected by test technique and scale.
