This report is a compilation of test data on airplane fuselages, nacelles, airship cars, seaplane floats, and seaplane hulls, prepared by the Bureau of Aeronautics, at the requests of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics. The discussion of the data includes the derivation of a scale correction curve to be used in obtaining the full scale drag. Composite curves of drag and L/D for floats and hulls are also given.
