A tiltrotor aircraft includes a spanwise-flow redirector having a pair of flow-redirection panels respectively mounted on the aircraft's mid-fuselage area for rotation about a panel pivot axis between a stowed position and a deployed position. In the stowed position, each panel is substantially flush with an adjacent surface of the mid-fuselage area. In the deployed position, each panel is raised into the path of one of the inbound spanwise flows generated by the aircraft's rotors during hover operation, whereupon each panel redirects the respective one ...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] In a tiltrotor aircraft including a fuselage having a centerline axis, a pair of generally-oppositely-extending wings on the fuselage separated by a mid-fulselage area, and a driven rotor mounted on each wing for rotation between a forward-flight position and a hover position, and wherein the driven rotors in the hover position generate a first spanwise flow toward the mid-fuselage area over one of the wings and a second spanwise flow toward the mid-fuselage area over another of the wings, the improvement comprising a spanwise...
