Default CG & Wing Pre-load Affirmation

Back on track...

Because documentation is so scarce for the B-47 due to records being destroyed by being burnt
at all B-47 contractor locations for manufacture, servicing, and maintenance as a result of security
during the high point of the Cold War...it has taken nearly 10 years to find technical resources for
this project. Something of this magnitude can not be achieved with supposition. There are too many
loose ends.

Early on I referred to this as herding cats.

This morning I discovered resources in support of the CG location calculated. Using online calculators
has always been something of an accuracy issue for a normal aka regular r/c model...the value of the
B-47 collaborative resources leaves me just a wee paranoid. I have questioned everyone who has had
the fortunate task where their CG was located as well as reviewing the engineered drawings obtained.

This video exemplifies the severe consequences of both wing pre-load and CG. The easy answer for
the CG is "seen" in the wind tunnel tethered B-47. Consequence of unloaded or under-loaded wings
is graphically illustrated as well.

to watch archival footage of Boeing wind tunnel testing of the B-47.
