was found by historian Wolfgang Lohmann in the 70s at Hillegossen, Germany, patching up a roof.
The biggest challenge was to determine drag because it is provided not only by wings, but also by fuselage and tailplane
. Other components, like landing gear, windshield etc.
The Hawks' paint scheme incorporates the Union Jack on the tailplane
and the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund logo on the underside.
Given that the aircraft was joining the circuit to land when the accident occurred, the loads on the tailplane
are unlikely to have been excessively high at this point.
pounds 50 for a 4ft shard of the tailplane

tailerons (C) differentially operable ailerons and elevators of an aircraft's tailplane
This plane, the Bleriot VII, was monoplane in configuration, carried a front-mounted engine, a rudder and tailplane
to the rear, an enclosed fuselage, and a landing gear assembly featuring two main wheels and a tail wheel.
Budgets and contracts are committed on a total of 180 aircraft which will be assembled in Seville from parts despatched from Britain (wings), Germany (fuselage) France (front cockpit and controls) and Spain (tailplane
), although this distribution may be altered in the future.
In addition, icing can affect the control surface effectiveness and aerodynamic balance, which can lead to changes in longitudinal or lateral stability and, ultimately, a wingtip or tailplane
stall (Green, 1998; Green et al., 1996).
Electronic countermeasures includes an infrared missile-approach warner and eight chaff/flare dispensers in the bottom of each engine duct between wingroot and tailplane
with another in each tailplane
The FA-2 has a wing about the size of an F-14 tailplane
, so conventional approach speeds tend to be horrific without full flaps.
