    The Osprey is a horrible aircraft. Like Ledbetter said, they are like lawn darts.

    The Osprey is known affectionately as Carolina Lawn Darts to the US Marine Corps, based on how easily they crash and how many pilots have died during the test phases in the Ospreys early stages. Hope the Air Force personnel are alright.
