The group met for the first time in February and delivered their first report in April The team outlined a baseline configuration that looked like an enlarged Avro This effect had been noticed earlier, notably by Chuck Yeager in the Convair XFbut its qualities had not been fully appreciated.
Weber suggested that this was no mere curiosity, and the effect could be deliberately used to improve low speed performance. Although the delta had already been used on aircraft prior to this point, these designs used planforms that were not much different from a swept wing of the same span.
Such a layout would still have good supersonic performance inherent to the short span, while also offering reasonable take-off and landing speeds using vortex generation.
Test pilot Eric Brown recalls Morgan's reaction to the presentation, saying that he immediately seized on it as the solution to the SST problem.
Brown considers this moment as being the true birth of the Concorde project. At the very first meeting, on 5 Novemberthe decision was made to fund the development of a test bed aircraft to examine the low-speed performance of the slender delta, a contract that eventually produced the Handley Page HP.
This would remain economically advantageous as long as fuel represented a small percentage of operational costs, as it did at the time. To meet this schedule, development would need to begin inwith production contracts let in Armstrong Whitworth also responded with an internal design, the M-Wing, for the lower-speed shorter-range category.
Even at this early time, both the STAC group and the government were looking for partners to develop the designs. Each of these planforms had its own advantages and disadvantages in terms of aerodynamics.
As they worked with these shapes, a practical concern grew to become so important that it forced selection of one of these designs. As the aircraft layout changes during the design phase, it is common for the CG to move fore or aft.
With a normal wing design this can be addressed by moving the wing slightly fore or aft to account for this. Studying the various layouts in terms of CG changes, both during design and changes due to fuel use during flight, the ogee planform immediately came to the fore.
Bristol's original Type was a small design with an almost pure slender delta wing,  but evolved into the larger Type In the late s the government requested designs from both the government-owned Sud Aviation and Nord Aviationas well as Dassault.
Of the three, the Sud Aviation Super-Caravelle won the design contest with a medium-range design deliberately sized to avoid competition with transatlantic US designs they assumed were already on the drawing board.
Bristol was surprised to find that the Sud team had designed a very similar aircraft after considering the SST problem and coming to the very same conclusions as the Bristol and STAC teams in terms of economics. Sud made minor changes to the paper, and presented it as their own work.
The French had no modern large jet engines, and had already concluded they would buy a British design anyway as they had on the earlier subsonic Caravelle.
This lower speed would also speed development and allow their design to fly before the Americans. The UK team was still focused on a passenger design serving transatlantic routes, while the French were deliberately avoiding these. However, this proved not to be the barrier it might seem; common components could be used in both designs, with the shorter range version using a clipped fuselage and four engines, the longer one with a stretched fuselage and six engines, leaving only the wing to be extensively re-designed.
A single design emerged that differed mainly in fuel load. More powerful Bristol Siddeley Olympus engines, being developed for the TSR-2allowed either design to be powered by only four engines. The Treasury Ministry in particular presented a very negative view, suggesting that there was no way the project would have any positive financial returns for the government, especially in light that "the industry's past record of over-optimistic estimating including the recent history of the TSR.Nov 20, · Officials at the site of the Nov.
