Any Info About This V/STOL?

Thu Apr 25, 2002 4:08 am

Hey all,
Does anybody have any info about the CTV-Hiller-Ryan XC-142? It was an experimental V/STOL cargo transport from probably around the mid 1960s. I'm not sure if a prototype was ever built, but I did see a picture (drawn) of one. It was a 4 engined (turbo prop) a/c a little smaller than a C-130. The 4 engines and wing tilted to provide lift. It also had a smaller prop right behind the tail to provide additional lift. (not sure if it had it's own engine or was driven by the main engines via a shaft--probably the latter)
Anyhow, any info or pics would be much appreciated.
Thanks,  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

P.S. Not sure if I should ask this in the military forum as I'm not sure if this is a military a/c or not.

Type "XC-142" in to Google, and away you go!

The name XC-142 implies that it is military.

Thanks. I'll try that. I did use google before I posted that, but nothing came up. I guess that might of been because I used the whole name. Anyways, Thanks again.
