    well he did say it was based on the Kelly Johnson "chicken test" remember?

    Kelly was a very direct and very smart person.

    He wasn't one to count the feathers missing on those chickens and graph them for anyone.

    I remember a test he did for the f-104. He took the wing and then the t-tail and strapped them to sounding rockets and photographed them in flight.

    No empirical graphs here just basic sound understanding of engineering

    you should really look into the story of Kelly Johnson

    want a empirical test Speedzones has them
