Hydrodynamic aircraft test (Third of 3 images). Future Supersonic Transport Aircraft (ATSF), Concorde's proposed successor, in a hydrodynamic tunnel. Streams of dye show the flow of water over the surface of the model, their colours showing their point of origin. The flow of water over the fuselage's surface, such as the spiralling vortices over the wing, indicate the aerodynamic properties of a full-size air- craft. Photographed at the National Office for the Study and Research of Aerospace (ONERA) in Chatillon, France. T612/158, T612/159).
