WE are greatly indebted to MR. SHENSTONE for calling attention to the paper, published in the 1936 year book of the LilienthalGesellschaft fr Luftfahrtforschung, by HERR QUICK on researches that have been made on two types of tapered wing for the Junkers Ju. 86.
IF I am to cover the development of the Ju 86 wing in this short paper, it will be obvious that I shall not be able to touch upon all the aerodynamic problems encountered. Thus I shall deal particularly with the modern problem of lateral stability about the longitudinal axis, or wingdropping.
TRAILING edge flaps, it seems, have come to stay for some time the devices that looked almost too good to be true when first investigated have proved invaluable, not only as aids to landing more heavily loaded aircraft, but more recently they have been shown to be extremely useful in helping...
THE past two years have seen a notable increase in the number of services on aircraft for which some form of power is required. First, retractable undercarriages, followed by wing flaps, gun turrets, and automatic pilots, have demanded a light and compact source of power, capable of being...

In all drawing offices laboursaving methods of making approximate preliminary calculations are in use. Here the author renders useful service in throwing open to others charts he has himself developed for rapid selection of appropriate sizes of tubes and bolts, etc., for components and fittings.
In a hub for airplane or similar propellers having a plurality of blades, sleeves integral with the hub adapted to receive the spindles of the blades so as to permit their turning about their longitudinal axes for the variation of pitch, a holding member for the spindle of each blade, a sliding...
Aircraft control surfaces 3, Fig. 1, are pivotally attached about forwardly convergent axes to wing or tailplane 2 and are arranged to constitute overlapping tips thereto and are each movable to operative positions in which they extend above and below the level of the wing or tailplane as shown...
