V/STOL

V/STOL

During the last few years of my time in the Marines, they were developing the V-22 Osprey. An Osprey was capable of Vertical or Short Take Off and Landings. It meant the plane could take off and land without a runway. Care to guess why they labeled it the “Osprey”? This image demonstrates how the bird is able to “hover” and eventually land from that hover.
