You are right, that doesn't sound right. At least if a positive value did
point down, it would be in conflict with the AOA parameter. That said, are
you sure the DC-3 is supposed to have a negative incidence? I just looked up
the p51 and the diagram clearly shows a positive incidence. The tail is +2.0
degrees (so that at level AoA=0 on main wing, the tail would have a AoA of 2.0
