||These items contain A.R.
Weyl's historic articles from Aircraft Engineering and The Aeroplane,
"Tailless Aircraft and Flying Wings"; Aircraft
Engineering; 12/44, 1/45, 2/45.
These total about a 112-page book. Each set is photocopied from my master
copies of the Cleveland Public Library's originals and spiral bound in
black vinyl. The copy quality is good for second generation copies. The
originals are becoming unfortunately ever more brittle due
to their age; so opportunities to view and copy them will become rarer.
Taken together, these articles constitute the most scholarly and extensive individual contribution to literature on the history and principles of tailless flight up to its time. Well documented (citing hundreds of refs.) and illustrated, they remain a monument to Mr. Weyl's erudition, only a few foreign and wartime efforts (e.g. German
developments like the Me-163) having escaped his keen eye for historical and technical significance.
