    I was a kid of 14 when NASA brought this technology to Oshkosh. I seem to remember them calling it a “scissor wing” design. I also remember thinking how tiny the plane was, much smaller than it appears in the video.

    The conceptional theory was tht by setting the wing at an oblique angle there would be a reduced aeronautical drag allowing for higher speeds and lower fuel consumption
    Oblique wing design dates back to the 1940's by a German Military aircraft designer.
