Hi Wladimyr - In "wing.geo" you recombine the extruded mesh, so there
are quads on the boundary--and Gmsh's unstructured algorithm only
generates tetrahedra (the algorithm should create pyramids at the
interface but that's not implemented).
One solution is to remove the "Recombine" commands, so that you have
triangles/tetrahedra everywhere. A better solution is probably to just
extrude everything (this works nicely: cf. attached file "wingex.geo").
