Osprey

Part plane, part helicopter, the V-22 Osprey is one of a kind but the history of this aerial transformer has not been without trauma considering the billions of dollars spent on development and the dozens of lives lost. Now, after over a decade of political turmoil and media scrutiny, the Osprey is rising from the ashes. This is the story behind the masterful engineering and unwavering dedication of servicemen and women that have helped transform this aircraft into a combat-hardened lifesaver.
