NASA has made many contributions to a broad range of aircraft including general aviation, fighters, civil transports, lifting bodies, reentry capsules, parawing vehicles, and supersonic transports. This book describes the issues that must be considered when transferring subscale results to full-scale application, and reviews results obtained in historically significant aircraft programs.

This book presents the physical bases of practical high-speed aerodynamics, and the influence of air compressibility on the aerodynamic characteristics of wings and aircraft. Primary attention is turned to passenger jets.
by Theodore A. Talay - NASA History Division
This book is an introductory course in aerodynamics. It provides more than a layman's treatment of the subject but not the detail as taught in many individual courses on the college level. The result is a highly qualitative, illustrated set of notes.

With the passage of time there are opportunities to reconsider Project Apollo anew. This book draws out the statistical information about each of the flights that have been long buried in numerous technical memoranda and historical studies.

A theory of subsonic flight based on a combination of analysis and computation. We uncover a mechanism for the generation of substantial lift at the expense of small drag of a wing, which is fundamentally different from the classical theories.
