The HL-10 Lifting Body

Home

The Northrop HL-10 was one of five heavyweight lifting body designs flown at NASA's Flight Research Center (FRC -- later Dryden Flight Research Center), Edwards, California, from July 1966 to November 1975.  The purpose of the HL-10 was to study and validate the concept of safely maneuvering and landing a low lift-over-drag vehicle designed for reentry from space.  It was a NASA design and was built to evaluate "inverted airfoil" lifting body and delta platform.
