V22V-22 Osprey jointly developed by Boeing and Bell Helicopter was demonstrated for the first time as a military aerial refueling aircraft last month during a test flight over Texas.

The V-22 carried a prototype refueling kit and deployed a drogue system in mid-air over north Texas while two F/A-18 Hornet jets flew into position behind and to the side during the test, Boeing said Thursday.

Boeing and Bell plan to carry out additional tests to evaluate the V-22’s ability to refuel different types of aircraft in flight.

V-22 tiltrotor aircraft are designed take off and land like a helicopter and fly like an airplane.
