When measuring wingspan, they measure from one tip to the other tip. What I want to know, is how long are the wings from the body to the tip at the leading edge, the longest part of the wing. I need to know for these types of aircraft.

No, that doesn't work. A wing itself when laid out is quite a bit longer than measured wingspand. Wings are angled back, therefore reducing the overall wingspand. The length of the wing itself is different than wingspan. I want to know what the length of the wing is from the fuselage down the leading edge of the wing to the tip.
