The results are presented of a wind-tunnel investigation of the damping in pitch of a model triangular wing having an aspect ratio of 4 combined with a slender pointed body. The investigation was conducted at Mach numbers from 0.10 to 0.95 for Reynolds numbers of 550,000 and 1,250,000 with additional data obtained at Reynolds numbers of 3,000,000 and 6,000,000 at a Mach number of 0.23.
