Ginter Air Force Legends Vol. 213 - the Vought/Hiller/Ryan XC-142A tiltwing VSTOL transport. Developed as tri-service VSTOL medium transport aircraft, the aircraft fell victim to budget constraints,less-than-stellar performance and technological limitations that would have made it too expensive and difficult to operate in any event. However it was a ground-breaking aircraft, and many of the lessons learned were put to god use with the ultimately successful V-22 Osprey program. Chock-full of detail photos and drawings which will make this an invaluable reference. Softcover. All text is in English.
