decalage and incidence
folks: i see that both terms are sometimes misused.
difference in angle of the chord line of the wing and the chord line of the horizontal stabilizer.
Angle of incidence is a measure of the angle at which the wing or horizontal tail of an airplane is installed on the fuselage, measured relative to the axis of the fuselage.
just in case...
