What happens to airliner prototypes? Do they eventually get modified to production standards and sold to airline companies, or do they stay with the maker till the end? Are they used for any purpose other than testing this and that? I guess it would cost the manufacturer a lot of money to keep and maintain an aircraft (well, maybe not compared to the development costs). How many prototypes are usually needed till production begins? Thanks; | Ahmet ONAT Kyoto Univ.
