Sample text

For this reason, and to concentrate the earliest testing in one location, aircraft 2 was constructed and initially flown at Bell instead of Boeing, as originally planned. Aircraft 2 made its first flight on 9 August 1989 and was ferried to Wilmington on 6 May 1990, the first cross-country flight for the V-22 that spanned 1,21 Onm. No 4 flew from Boeing's Wilmington test facility on 21 December 1989. N03 was completed and flown in Texas on 9 May 1990 while 5 was completed in Delaware and 6 built in Texas.

While the civil transports Bell was conceiving atthetime had two of these engines in tip nacelles and a third in the fuselage, the military transport design had four engines with two in each nacelle. The fuel cells were placed in the wing and the landing gear in side sponsons. This aircraft would have had a V-tail and a straight wing that could be pivoted adjacent to the fuselage for below-deck stowage. Originally the V-tail, latter replaced with a T-tail, would have folded down for hangar deck clearance.

It also improved ceiling clearances during loading of tall cargo via the rear loading ramp, and increased clearance between the top of the aft fuselage and the starboard engine nacelle during BFWS. The kink in the aft-most portion of the fuselage contributed to all of this, but was most valuable for increasing tail clearance during loading on the ramp. This eased the rollon/roll-off capability envisioned for wheeled vehicles and engine transport dollies. The enlarged sponsons were actually found to reduce drag, especially in combination with the new aft body design.
