McPhat and Coolsky are proud to show you some sneak previews of McPhat’s external wing textures.
According to Coolsky “The DC-9 wings were designed to be fast on cruise and perform well on short runways.” ”The final wing design was the optimal combination of wing-sweep angle, 24 degree sweep back at the center chord, and wing thickness to yield the lowest operating cost for a given cruise speed (M.80), payload-range ability and field length requirements.”
“Designed to provide a stable, sturdy and reliable airplane structure, the all metal wing was produced to withstand the stress of frequent takeoffs and landings which jets operating short haul endure.”
