English term or phrase:canard
Definition from quest.nasa.gov: a tail configuration (two small horizontal surfaces on either side of the aircraft) mounted toward the front of the aircraft, rather than at the rear.
The acute angle between the fuselage and the canard creates interference drag. Air flow moving past the fuselage"tangles" with airflow moving up and over the canard. corvairq.info/Canard
Moreover, the spin-rate of the fin system is governed not only by the wind vector and canard deflections, but also by the strength and location of the convected canard vortices, whose induced
velocity field differentially loads the tail fins at low angles of attack. people.nas.nasa.gov
In addition to its 12-foot-diameter rotor/wing, it has an 8.9-foot-span canard and an 8.1-foot-span horizontal tail. Boeing
"Canard" is a French word which means "duck." On such an aircraft with the airframe configuration of the tailplane ahead of the main wing, rather than behind the latter, this kind of tailplane can be called a 鸭蹼翼 (duckweb plane) or 前置翼 (put-ahead plane). However, I would prefer the name of "duckweb plane."
