Thanks for posting the proof of concept links. Actually had an in depth conversation with a relative regarding this exact topic yesterday afternoon. You inadvertently helped out.

Cheers

Saw the Northrop wing from Chino a year and a half before it was officially unveiled. Good mystery until it was publicly shown. Where was Google when we were pre net like today.

With that wing design, I could see that it could. Although I have no personnel experience. It does kinda look like a C-130 and a U-2 got jiggly after an all night bender.
