For your consideration, a rare original circa 1960’s photograph of the Hiller X-18 experimental plane. This original chromogenic “C” print was most probably photographed with a large format camera (4x5, or 8x10 negative size) and is rich in tonality, color saturation, fine grain, and image sharpness.
The print measures 19 3/8” x 15 ½” and is dry mounted to a 23” x 19” museum board. The print is in excellent vintage condition with no loss of emulsion, stains, and only the most minor signs of wear. The Hiller X-18 was an experimental cargo transport aircraft designed to be the first test bed for tilt-wing and VSTOL(vertical/short takeoff and landing) technology.
Design work started in 1955 by Stanley Hiller Jr, and Hiller Aircraft Corp. received a manufacturing contract and funding from the U.S. Air force to build the only X-18 ever produced, serial #57-3078. Note: I have another set of images of this plane being offered at this time on Cypress Studio.
