The book discusses the full range of tailless designs, from hanggliders to the US 'Stealth Bomber', and includes a detailed look at particularly significant designs. The authors' own experience in this field allows them to explain and illustrate the topic in a way that will both appeal to the enthusiast and satisfy the professional aerodynamicist's need for academic rigour: a rare mix of sound science and first hand experience.


University and technical libraries with aeronautical interest; postgraduate and postdoctoral aeronautical researchers; flight enthusiasts for powered flight, gliders, hanggliders, microlights and aeronautical history; designers of model aircrafts.
