This report presents the results of a wind-tunnel investigation at subsonic and supersonic Mach numbers to determine the aerodynamic characteristics of a wing-body combination having a triangular wing of aspect ratio 2. The mean surface of the wing was twisted and cambered to support a nearly elliptical span load distribution at a Mach number of 1.53 and a lift coefficient of 0.25.
