WHY A SWAN NECK?

Ever wondered why aircraft sling the engines under the wing instead of on top? Thatís because on a plane, the top side of the wing is the important part, speeding the air, creating low pressure and thus lift. That area needs to be uninterrupted. Think of a racing car wing as an inverted aircraft wing and you begin to wonder why it took so long for items with unencumbered undersides to appear.




Swan neck, check.

Squiggle in rear diffuser - odd.
