I'm a sucker for the Osprey.
Sure it's been in development for 20 years and there have been a lot of crashes.
But those tiltrotors are so cool! And if they ever get it to work as advertised, it really will be a very useful machine.
And 130M$ a piece doesn't sound too bad for military hardware.
David Axe starts a series today about the Osprey called Ready for primetime? that I'm really looking forward to. Here's what I want to know: Seems like I heard somewhere that the Osprey doesn't do so well with sand. Any truth to that, David?
