Critical Angle of Attack/Aerodynamic Balance[edit]


Have removed statements regarding "critical angle of attack" (which is actually the angle that will induce a stall rather than maximum lift as stated) and "aerodynamic balance" as I can't find any other reference to these achievements. If you want to put these back in, please cite sources.

Spelling of the Latinized name ???[edit]

Does that "y" belong at the end of the name the first paragraph? Joefaust (talk) 03:26, 23 December 2008 (UTC)

Some additional information[edit]

Found a citation of several popularizing references to the project from 1910-11, and also what seems to be part of the original patent application (written out in Mozhaysky's native Polish) with aerofoil wings. While none of that shows that it flew properly, the secondary accusations of Stalinist falsification and wings without curvature may be inaccurate. --AJN (talk) 14:37, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

Some additional information reply[edit]

This picture is unlikely to be a part of original patent applications. Hardly patent applications could be filled in language Tzarist government strove to exterminate. Mozhaysky can, of course, be of polish ascendancy, but being RUSSIAN naval officer and SON OF a russian naval officer hardly deemed he polish to be his native language in a sense over than, say, Hebrew can be called "native language" of a russian jew. Besides that, the inscription in the upper part of the drawing's stamp is likely to mean something like "aircraft that have made themselves famous". — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:29, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
