Here it is folks, the poster-child of military overspending (we spend more money on our military than the next 18 countries combined, or something in that area). It's estimated that over $50 billion in taxpayer money will be spent on this. True, it takes off like a helicopter and flies like an airplane, but it's a sitting duck while the rotors are tilting. This is probably going on a ton of Top Ten Worst Aircrafts lists simply because of its notoriety.
WHOO. These birds are SWEEEEET! I was at a water park and saw one fly over, it was so noisy! Everyone around me looked up and said "Oh my god! What IS that?" and I leaned over to my dad and went "PFFT. They know nothing. That's an Osprey " They're pretty awesome in flight. Wish I could have seen it longer though. It just kinda flew over, then some trees and buildings got in the way.
