More interesting news from the UK MOD site. It appears the US Marines are getting in on the act now, first it was the US Navy and their Osprey, now it's USMC Harriers using HMS Illustrious as a temporary home prior to a UK - US Naval Exercise.

That is really neat. When I was a medic we did a bunch of stuff with the yanks, especialy in Germany with the Mailed foot march competition. It was always fun, I bet those sailors and yanks are having a fun time.

and isn't the osprey the aircraft that has a horrible record of crashing :O?

unfortunly this is just PR. It seems tht the Ospry project is hitting problems somewhere.

And Celeon can you inform us on the REAL first tilt roter/engine aircraft? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
