    Osprey #100

    We delivered our 100th Osprey to the Marines on Wednesday (link here), and it looks like the long term contract is coming down the pike within the next couple of weeks to build at least another 167. Got a nice little souvenir today to commemorate it too

    VMM-266 is the Marine squadron that received the 100th bird...

    What, no pictures of the Osprey? Action shots would be nice.

    I saw one of these things flying around the airport in Asheville and it took my brain a few seconds to figure it out. Looked like a hay bailer lumbering around in the sky.

    People will forget what you said... and people will forget what you did... but people will never forget how you made them feel.
