It is not true, that the oblique wing concept is originated by Robert T. Jones in 1945. There were at least two german wartime projects, the Blom & Voss P.202 and the Messerschmitt P.1109-01 (both 1944)with a proposed OW design. Designer of the P.202 was Dr. Richard Vogt who came to the US via Paperclip and worked in Air force research facilities then. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 09:17, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
The mechanism can turn in only one direction
This is obviously supposed to mean that, for example, in one given design it is always the right wing tip that is swivelled forward from the perpendicular position.
The above phrase though implies that the wing, once swivelled, cannot turn back to perpendicular.
- I can't think of anything right off, but probably needs to say something about swiveling or pivoting rather than turning. - BillCJ (talk) 08:04, 23 December 2007 (UTC)
Fixed oblique wing
This article considers that the oblique configuration is variable only, but there have been demonstrators built with fixed oblique angles, and proposed full-up aircraft with fixed configurations. The article should be repaired. -- 188.8.131.52 (talk) 12:44, 14 April 2013 (UTC)
Proposed merge with DSI/NASA Oblique Wing RPV
- Oppose It's a distinct aircraft meeting WP:N. Moving the content into the overall article wouldn't improve either. Andy Dingley (talk) 09:44, 24 October 2015 (UTC)
- Oppose: Per Andy Dingley. See also Wikipedia:Notability (aircraft). — Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 11:32, 24 October 2015 (UTC)
- Suggestion: Moving the specific article to NASA Oblique Wing RPV would help disambiguate it from the NASA AD-1, but that is a different issue. — Cheers, Steelpillow (Talk) 11:32, 24 October 2015 (UTC)
