Textron's Bell subsidiary and Boeing conducted the maiden flight of the CMV-22B Osprey tiltrotor aircraft at Amarillo Assembly Center in Texas.

The CMV-22B Osprey is slated to replace the U.S. Navy's C-2A Greyhound aircraft and will work to carry supplies, mail, high-priority cargo and military personnel from shore bases to carrier ships, Textron said Tuesday.

Textron noted the aircraft will also deliver F-35 engine components and is expected to be updated with additional operational features to optimize its mission adaptability.

The Navy's Air Test and Evaluation Squadron will carry out developmental tests for the Osprey following the debut flight.
