Congrats to the Osprey Program

Congrats to Bell Flight and The Boeing Company, who announced today that the V-22 Osprey tiltrotor fleet has surpassed 500,000 flight hours. This trio of MV-22 Ospreys was photographed by Skip Robinson.

This aircraft caused a lot of controversy in Okinawa

Its a… heliplane? xD

Really nice photo that they took, and cool aircraft!

It’s a tilt rotor, so it takes off, lands and hovers like a helicopter and can sling load
In forward flight it can tilt its rotors to fly like an airplane
