- A wind tunnel study to determine the supersonic aerodynamic characteristics of a 0.01925-scale model of the space shuttle orbiter configuration is reported. The model consisted of a low-finess-ratio body with a blended 50 swept delta wing forming an ogee planform and a center-line-mounted vertical tail. Tests were made at Mach numbers from 1.90 to 4.63, at angles of attack from -6 to 30, at angles of sideslip of 0 and 3, and at a Reynolds number, based on body length, of 5.3x 1 million.
