A circular underslung inlet located well forward on a body of revolution - modified by drooping the nose in the direction of the inlet was tested at a Mach number of 1.42 in a free-air jet. The nose shapes, one pointed and two spherical, were tested through a range of mass-flow ratios at three different angles of attack and one angle of yaw.
