Full text not available from this repository.


The invention relates to an aircraft comprising a symme- try plane, two wings, a fuselage, a horizontal tail plane (HTP) and with means for a premature breakdown of a wing vortex pair behind the aircraft in flight, which pair is generated in the tip area of the wings, has a first spin direction and descends in the near field behind the aircraft. The invention deals in particular with the premature breakdown of the wing vortex pair behind an aircraft in landing flight. However, it is also advisable to apply the invention to an aircraft in climbing or cruise flight.
