Reading `twixt the lines of this article:

1) You lose both engines in helo mode in a tiltrotor, you're probably dead. (Maybe you'll get lucky.)

2) Lose both in airplane mode, you'll survive if you can find a patch to land it at an over-the-fence speed of 150mph.

I would think a forced landing in airplane mode will require a shrapnel (rotor pieces) proof cockpit.

At 150 mph, guessing that a fair part of them are vertical from the looks of that brick, I'd venture saying the shrapnel cockpit would be second to the need a shovel to get back to the surface (or other more lugubrious uses).

Waiting for the boss on the patio of the new , really nice, county FBO at Duplin County, NC , and getting a great show from an Osprey from New River, practicing approaches and landings in different configurations.

I often wonder how Bumblebees fly, but I think I could figure that out easier than how a tilt rotor flies.

nothing clever to say right now...

I was flying out of KGPM back in the 80's when the V-22 was being developed. A couple of the Bell test pilots were over there learning aerobatics in a Citabria in preparation for the test flight phase.

Jeff - I have a flight of three V-22s in "standard formation" (meant nothing to me) on a parallel course on my arrival into ILM last weekend, and one flew over the beach yesterday (but it was at 2,000' or more...don't think I've ever seen one that high).

I know what you mean about how it flies. I sure can't figure it out, with the translation to cruise flight and all.

Considering the accident rate, I am not sure they fly.

Probably out of MCAS New River, just a bit north of there. A former co-worker of mine left the IT business and went to OCS in 2007 or 2008. He's flying the V-222 Osprey out of New River.

John - Yes. We see New River aircraft a lot here, in the air over the beach and often at ILM (usually Harriers and the V-22s lately).
