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.
