Never forget the Osprey.. We have spent billions and billions of taxpayer dollars over three decades making this unstable and idiotic metal brick fly, a vehicle that is still not approved for general use in the military because of its lamentable safety record. The reason all that money was thrown into the bottomless pit of the military/industrial complex?
The Osprey is claimed to be about 20% faster than an ordinary helicopter, about 50 mph faster. It is supposed to be able to get our troops to some place where they weren't 20% faster, you know, like Benghazi.
Perhaps that 20% faster could be beneficial if the bomb the elephant needed to sniff out was a time bomb.
