... . The maximum ratio of lift to drag was 10.9 and the minimum sinking speed was 0.81ms −1 2. Wing span decreased when either air speed or glide angle increased. Wing area was a parabolic function of wing span 3. Lift and profile drag coefficients of the wings fell in a polar area similar to that for a laggar...

...VANCE A. TUCKER The air speeds and sinking speeds of birds gliding at equilibrium fall in a performance area when these quantities are plotted against one another. Three curves bound the performance area: (i) a curve for minimum sinking speed at each air speed, (ii) a curve for maximum sinking...
