Part I - Inventing the Future
Parabolic metal airfoil, camber 1/20 chord, span = 4.5 inches, chord = .66 inches, area = 3 square inches.
The piece sticking out is a hook, used, presumably, to attach the foil to a stand in the wind tunnel.
This is one of a collection of thirty-eight original model airfoils used in the December 1901 wind tunnel investigations. In the collection, the object is number "26."
Now, back to The Airfoils.
