The aircrat demonstrated conversion and orward fight in 1978 as the rst tilting rotor vehicle to solve the problemso “prop whirl.” As a result o tremendously dicult research, the tiltrotor aircrat was able to combine theadvantages o vertical lito and landing capabilities, which are inherent to the traditional helicopter, withthe orward speed and range o a xed-wing turboprop airplane. (NASA image Ames EC80-75)This gravity model o Arica and Europe was prepared using data rom the Gravity Recovery and ClimateExperiment (GRACE), which was launched on 17 March 2002.
