From one era to the next and depending on the type of aircraft, the shape and position of the wings in relation to the fuselage has varied.
Thin triangular wing that is especially aerodynamic.
variable geometry wing
Arrow-shaped wing found on combat aircraft; the angle it forms with the fuselage can be changed in flight.
Wing that is perpendicular to the fuselage and whose width decreases toward the tip.
Long wing of consistent width and perpendicular to the fuselage; it is found on low-speed planes such as cargo and light planes.
