"From Ducks to Jets: Exploring the Fascinating World of Canards" A Typhoon F2 fighter jet gracefully touches down at RAF Coningsby, deploying its brake parachute for a smooth landing. An intriguing engraving titled "Les canards sont pris, on leur tord le cou" showcases the capture and twisting fate (ducks). Transporting us back in time, a watercolor painting from 1890 captures the serene beauty of Mallard Ducks gliding across a tranquil lake. Amidst a captivating Nile scene, ducks peacefully coexist with a snake and hippopotamus, showcasing nature's intricate balance. The North American XB-70A Valkyrie soars through the skies with its distinctive canard design, pushing boundaries in aviation engineering. NASA's Ames-Dryden Flight Research Facility witnesses the groundbreaking X-29 aircraft in action during an exhilarating research flight. Smoke generators mounted in the nose of the X-29 aid researchers as they gather valuable data during their 1991 flight experiments. The HiMAT subscale research vehicle takes flight, demonstrating highly maneuverable aircraft technology that pushes aerodynamic limits. Karl Bodmer's lithograph beautifully portrays Canards Ducks, capturing their elegance and charm with meticulous detail. Once again, we witness the HiMAT subscale research vehicle soaring through the sky during another remarkable research flight at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center.
