A wing-body combination having a plane triangular wing of aspect ratio 4 and 3-percent- thick, biconvex sections in streamwise planes has been investigated at both subsonic and supersonic Mach numbers. The lift, drag, and pitching moment of the model are presented for Mach numbers from 0.60 to 0.92 and from 1.20 to 1.70 at Reynolds numbers of 1.66 million, 2.91 million, and 4.15 million. (The maximum mach number was limited to 1.60 at the highest Reynolds number.)
