Among the reasons I'm glad I'm not in Southern California any more is no more V-22 Ospreys flying overhead.

This project really feels like a kid thought it up. Specifically a kid who watched a lot of Transformers.

These things seem to fall out of the sky pretty regularly full of our most elite soldiers. Maybe one of our Army brats can explain their virtue over something like a blackhawk. I don't anything about aircraft but I do know Bell Helicopter epitomizes the revolving door between the Pentagon and the C-suit of military hardware manufactures. The CEO seems like a real dope, she bought Howe and Howe after watching an episode of Jay Leno's Garage.

During a USO tour through Asia and the South Pacific our escort said we could opt out of flying in a Chinook for that morning's gig 30 miles offshore in the South Pacific because of a storm. We took a vote and opted out. We were told Chinook went down but the crew survived. A couple days later we gave the small LORAN station their show.
