  • I love how the osprey turned into a C-130 and back into an Osprey again...

    Also how the men entered the Osprey then parachuted back to earth in a box...

    lol.

    • @dorbie That would be my first instinct if I ever wound up in one. They may very well hold the record for number of fatalities per hour of flight in non combat situations.

  • That's a nice looking aircraft, I've flown one in Call of Duty.

    It would be real nice to parachute out of a real one. Much coolness.

  • Osprey, brought to you by Rube Goldberg Engineering. Pre-flight check list: 1. Parachute, 2. Underwear, 3. Shirt and pants, 4. Shoes and socks, 5. Check to be sure you have parachute.

  • The osprey is the poster child for defense spending run amok. Despite failure after failure in design and testing and a rising body count from fatalities during testing, the government kept throwing money at it until it was airborne. Stupid war machine. UAV's with hellfires were game changers. This thing is an albatross, pun intended.

    • @dorbie

      amazing???..it restricted to only certain areas of combat..its easy to blame pilot errors but you know they designed a computer to assist the pilot land this thing because even the most skilled pilots says its unstable at low power.

    • @dorbie Uh, no. Most were caused by mechanical failure. It is still having problems.

    • @dorbie Clearly you have no clue. I work for the Navy. On aircraft. I've read some of the reports on the crashes. So yes, I am familiar with the details.

  • this heliplane has to be the biggest lemon the US army ever designed...10 years behind schedule and cost over run of over 1 billion dollars.The weight it suppose to carry has been reduced by 2000lbs since when the wing tilts to become plane causes the heliplane to drastically dip by over 10 meters unless the pilot goes full throttle when doing so but he cant do that if the landing area is surrounded by trees or mountains so it must land in wide open spaces..
