The Avro 698 Vulcan B2 Bomber

This is a presentation I threw together for my Aerospace Engineering class. We did a project where we had to pick an airplane and use the airfoil profile to create and test a scale model of the wing. this presentation was used to introduce and clarify t

Our Representation of the Avro Airfoil A couple of the difficulties we had with this airfoil was the exact shape. As you can see, it isnt an EXACT representation of the Vulcan's wing.
