Osprey goes to war


After nearly 2 decades of development costing $20 billion and the loss of 30 lives, the Osprey V-22 tilt-rotor aircraft is heading off to Iraq later this year.  This will mark the first deployment of the controversial plane.

Able to take off and land vertically, the Osprey’s engines transition to a horizontal position allowing it to perform like a conventional aircraft.

Loud and relatively slow, no doubt the insurgents will be jockeying for the bragging rights of the first Osprey kill.

One thought on “Osprey goes to war

  1. Your comment may be correct, but very insensitive
    to the familes who have Sons flying the “Osprey”
    and that many youg Marines will be transported on them.

    Your facts are also incorrect as the “Osprey” is know for flying higher, faster & quieter than any other helicopter. If it flew slow & lound what would be the point of putting $20 billion into it.
    If that is a correct figure?
