Same class of airfoils used on many sailplanes.  Always thought the shape was cool.

Quick questions for anyone who was at the Luke show:

1. There were two or three MiGs on static display - anyone know which manufacturers/variants they were? (MiG/Lim, 15/15UTi/17, etc).
2. The only F-15 on display was an F-15E from Mountain Home, correct?
3. The NASA F-18 on display was a B, correct? 
4. There was a KC-10 on the ramp that showed up, right? 
5. Was there an AWACS or JSTARs this year?  I don't remember any.

I think that's it.  Trying to fill in some gaps on a project and most of my static shots were lost in my hard drive crash over the summer.  Thanks for any info!

Joe, The F-15E was from Mountain Home, there was a KC-10 on the ramp. There were no AWACS or JSTARS this year. I don't know the NASA F18 model or the Migs, hope this helps some.

Joe,

I just took a look at my Monday departure shots, and I attached the three that I can contribute with.  One of the MiGs was a 15 (based on the wing planform), but not sure which variant.
