Hi everybody. I've come across a few terms relating to the fuselage and wing structure of airplanes that I dont understand. Can somebody please define the following terms: 1. Mean Aerodynamic chord (relating to wing structure) 2. Percent of mean aerodynamic chord (%MAC) (i think this relates to wing loading) 3. Wing incidence I've also seen some blueprints for the 707 (the greatest airplane ever made :) ) and saw two abbreviations that i did not understand: 1. STA (relating to fuselage) and how are the STA numbers determined? 2. WPL (relating to wing) and how are the WPL numbers determined? I appreciate any help you may give me.
