The most striking examples are those novels whose authors I directly assisted. But there are a few creations I've run across that did get the science correct without any help from me.
Like flaps, a flaring delta wing is both high lift and high drag.
This is part of the reason for the drooping nose design of the concorde. Also, a delta wing experiences much more ground effect during landing. Also, look at the outer wing of the SR Since the delta wing helps to stretch out the thickness distribution, it allows a bigger cross section.
The delta wing is larger but the local gradients are the same.
On the Lightning they had to add as a belly tank what they cut out from the wing initially. Instead of just suffering drag from a wing tip vortex you suffer even more with 2 extra vortices that form on a delta wing.
With a swept wing you reduce drag by decreasing the lift. The problem with that type of wing at supersonic speeds is that you surfer from wave shock drag. Wave shock drag forms when air on top of the wing exceeds the speed of sound.
Even at subsonic speeds that a travels at you suffer from wave shock drag. Air is moving so fast on top of the wing at subsonic speeds that it causes the air to break the sound barrier.
If you try to fly a swept wing at supersonic speeds your aircraft is really going to suffer from wave shock drag and any faster speeds could result in the whole plane splitting apart and is very serious.
The reason airliners use swept wings is to reduce the lift to reduce the amount of high pressure air that can rotate around the wingtip. The swept wings reduce wake vortex and wake vortex can actually decrease an aircrafts lift and you want as much lift as possible. The major companies that build airliners main focus is to decrease drag.Heroes and Villains - A little light reading.
Here you will find a brief history of technology. Initially inspired by the development of batteries, it covers technology in general and includes some interesting little known, or long forgotten, facts as well as a few myths about the development of technology, the science behind it, the context in which it occurred and the deeds of the many.

As a follow-up to Tuesday’s post about the majority-minority public schools in Oslo, the following brief account reports the latest statistics on the cultural enrichment of schools in Austria.
Vienna is the most fully enriched location, and seems to be in roughly the same situation as Oslo. Many thanks to Hermes for the translation from arteensevilla.com Delta wings are superior only in supersonic flight, and due to their good low speed characteristics they offer the best overall compromise for supersonic aircraft.
