Its comprehensive instrumentation package enabled assessment of loads, pressure distributions, and accelerations, evaluated against background data on flight conditions, aircraft attitude, and control surface position and forces. Between the end of 1950 and the fall of 1956, it completed 66 research flights on pitch-up and associated transonic phenomena, including the evaluation of the effects external wing stores—tanks and bomb shapes—had on aircraft performance. It evaluated a variety of proposed aerodynamic solutions and fixes to resolve the pitch-up problem, including various wing fence designs to “channel” airflow and inhibit the characteristic spanwise-flow (flow toward the wingtips) found with swept wing planforms, various combinations of slat and flap position, changes to leading edge shape, and “sawtooth” leading edge extensions on its outer wing panels.

But while the dramatic increase in fuselage length at the expense of span spoke to the need to reduce wing-aspect ratio and increase fuselage fineness ratio to achieve idealized supersonic shaping, any resulting aerodynamic benefit came only at the price of significant performance limitations and risk. 0 to well below this figure, the distribution of mass shifted to along the fuselage. Since a long forward fuselage inherently reduces directional stability, and since the small low aspect ratio wings of these airplanes reduced their roll stability, a potentially deadly mix of technical circumstances existed to 68.
