“TF By Two”

By Marty Shubert
Oil on Canvas, 11″ x 14″

The title of this painting reflects the unique nature of the testing depicted here. This scene represents flight tests of the Air Force Special Operations CV-22 that were done with respect to the development of its Terrain Following (TF) capabilities. Here, two aircraft are simultaneously flying TF in the southern Sierra Nevada Mountains near Edwards Air Force Base. These test aircraft were in fact partially modified MV-22 aircraft that were used as part of the EMD testing phase of the CV-22; hence the lighter color scheme as compared to the current CV-22. For me this was some of the most interesting testing in that it combined performance, handling qualities, and systems testing through an integrated multi-disciplinary teaming effort.
