Intrepid Sea, Air and Space MuseumThe design of the single-seat Tiger incorporated the Area Rule to reduce transonic and super-sonic drag. Its Coke bottle-shaped fuselage was narrower at the wings and tail, a concept developed by Richard Whitcomb of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA), the predecessor of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The Tiger featured a thin wing, fuselage-side intakes, a low-mounted tailplane, and an afterburning engine. The latter enabled the F11F to fly at 753 mph (1,112 kph). Tigers could reach altitudes of 42,000 feet (12,800 meters).
