Re: Flapless aircraft


Too technical for the BBC to call them ailerons ?  Interesting though thanks Smiley

It reminds me of the Northrop flying wing.

BTW glad to read you say "ailerons" in English. Cheesy

Just as a reference (and yes invested by the British!!)

So of course you are quite correct the BBC have got that one very wrong:

Re: Flapless aircraft


The craft does appear to be aileron-less (steering) and flap-less (take off/landing aid) and rudder-less (another flappy bit).

The articles seems to be trying to dumb down but have got it wrong instead.
