Note angled inlet to provide the maximal opening when increasing angle of attack as when climbing. A similar cant is built into the induction air scoop as described in the captions to follow.

Induction Air scoop, inboard side. Induction Air scoop, view from outboard side. Note shaped form of the scoop between the inlet and the wing which raises the opening off the surface of the wing to put the intake outside of the boundary layer. In theory, this should allow faster moving air to be pushed into the scoop. The "pillar" is set back from the opening and shaped in a taper to 1) decrease inhaling water that may be washing back under the strakes and 2) allow the boundary layer to split around the base of the scoop, hopefully decreasing the amount of disruption in flow and therefore drag. The opening is canted to provide the maximal opening when climbing, as is the oil cooling inlet also seen on this page. Throats of scoops glassed with layer of BID. Throat of inducation air scoop.
