V-22 Osprey by shelbs2 V-22 Osprey by shelbs2
Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey at the Nellis AFB airshow 2010. First time seeing one of these in person, wish they had flown it though

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 :D" 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.

Aw. Well I'd love to see it as close as you did! I did see it fly, but it was only for a split second, and from far away, so I'd rather see it up close on the ground :D

Wonder what the range ratio is compared to a UH-60..

This thing must beat it by a couple times.
