Making this article stand-alone (To-do)[edit]

Per the discussion here I have created this article using material from the history section of the aerodynamics article. I am open at any point in time to discussions of merging this article back into Aerodynamics and redirecting this page to the appropriate section. However, I believe that the number of sources already cited in the article make it notable enough to warrant its own article. Additionally, I think that the history of aerodynamics is a sufficiently different topic from the field of aerodynamics that it is sensible to include a brief summary in the aerodynamics article itself and direct readers interested in the history of the field to a fuller exploration here.

With that in mind, this is a working to-do list of things to improve the article. Please add to this list as you see fit.

  • add a section on Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • flesh out lead to summarize breaking sound barrier and beyond
  • article organization: within each time period, it may make sense to organize paragraphs by whether they deal with practical advances vs. theoretical advances
