Topic: Looking For Dimensions On Aircraft Tails

Can anybody point me towards a good website that has dimensions on aircraft tail assemblies? Better yet, if anybody here knows the specs and would like to share them with me, I'd be very appreciative. Doing a web search, the only things I have been able to find are tail height and occasionally the tail's wingspan.

I'd also like to know information such as chords (root, average, tip) and how thick the leading edge is.

The planes I'm most interested in are Boeings, such as the 727, 747, and 757.

Thanks,

Bryan

I'd start with Boeing's "Airplane Characteristics for Airport Planning".

http://www.boeing.com/commercial/airports/plan_manuals.html

Just pick the aircraft you want, select "Airplane Description", and scroll down until you get to the three views of the aircraft. This will give you tail height and tail span. Because the diagrams are all to scale, you can also make good estimates for your other numbers.

There may be better resources out there, but I hope this helps!
