Hi everyone, I was wondering why aren't most wings the same length from the leading edge to the trailing edge (is that is called the chord of the wing?) all along the span. I was making a small model airplane, and I guessed that with more surface area all along the wing but maintaining the same wingspan it would have more lift. My prediction was accurate, and the airplane flew better that the others I made. But why aren't airliners that way?
If it is not clear I'll try and re-explain my inquiry. Thanks in advance!
