THE OBJECTIVES of this article are twofold, firstly to argue the case for variable configuration aircraft, i.e. aircraft whose planform can be adjusted in flight to give optimum performance in differing roles; and secondly, to put forward proposals for a wing suspension designed to overcome the handicaps inherent in the method so far employed in mounting the wings of variable configuration aircraft.
