For dynamic similarity we must satisfy three criterions:

1. Same Mach number

2. Same Reynolds number

3. Geometric similarity

For aerofoil (1) we have the following data:

T

= 200

K

V

= 100m / s

ρ

i.e. the Mach numbers are the same so we have so far satisfied the first

Reynolds numbers are the same

Since the bodies are geometrically similar and the M and Re are the same, we have satisfied all the criterions, hence the two flows are dynamically similar.

Because we have a free stream velocity we have lift but if it was not moving then it would float due to the effect of buoyancy.
