NASA
Vought/Hiller/Ryan XC-142A
Dayton - Wright-Patterson AFB (Wright AFB) (DWF) (closed)
USA - Ohio, August 1973
Remark
Photographer
NASA522 (cn 4) Ex-USAF 62-5924. Long before the V-22 Osprey came along, extensive tests were conducted with five examples of this tilt-wing design, with a first conventional flight in 9.64 and vertical take-off with transition to normal flight and back for vertical landing in 1.65. Excessive vibration and noise from the cross-linked drive shaft and wing flexing were major problems, but the concept showed promise. A joint USAF/Army/Navy project, the USN withdrew and interest faded, the last LTV XC-142A flying into the USAFM in 1970

Remark

NASA522 (cn 4) Ex-USAF 62-5924. "Unusual" would probably be the kindest description of the way this machine looks! Note the incredible XB-70 prototype behind!

Dayton - Wright-Patterson AFB (Wright AFB) (DWF) (closed)
USA - Ohio, March 7, 2004
Remark
Photographer
NASA522 / 62-5924 (cn 4) Odd couple.The last surviving aircraft with the ominous last surviving North American XB70A Valkyrie Mach 3 Supersonic bomber prototype.An XC-142A first flew conventionally on Sept. 29, 1964 and on Jan. 11, 1965, completed its first transitional flight by taking off vertically, changing to forward flight, and finally landing vertically. Only 5 built.

Vought/Hiller/Ryan XC-142A
Dayton - Wright-Patterson AFB (Wright AFB) (DWF) (closed)
USA - Ohio, July 31, 1974
Remark
Photographer
NASA522 / 62-5924 (cn 4) Five XC-142 tilt-wing VTOL transport prototypes were built and extensively tested in the mid Sixties. The C-142 never entered production due to high cost, and due to problems similar to those that afflicted the Osprey decades later. 62-5924 was transferred to NASA
