Kline-Fogleman Airfoiled Flying Wing

Interesting and comprehensive discussion about a counter-intuitive airfoil.

Scientific American writeup here.
"It is a paper airplane so unconventional that it drives aerodynamics experts crazy. It seems to violate one of the major laws of flight: the Bernoulli principle, which explains, theoretically, what keeps all ordinary planes aloft. And it is a paper airplane whose plans are made public, for the first time, in this issue."
