  • In the meantime, Navair would fly tests with the four remaining prototypes built in the 1990s to establish just how vulnerable the Osprey really was to vortex ring state, to study its handling qualities when landing on a heaving, windy ship deck, and to define its ability to maneuver at low airspeeds.
