Whoops, noone ever told me that. I was at MCAS New RIver attending the Ch46e helo mechanic's course, as part of crew-chief training, when the mechs
and crews for the Osprey were being trained (in 2003). Our training area on the flightline was pretty close to the V-22s area, and I took plenty of
photos of it then. Its too bad that the hard drive that had all my military pictures on it got destroyed, taught me to always keep a backup, lol.
As a side note, as an airplane geek I always thought it was cool that Boeing had a field office right there off the flightline.
I was kinda jealous of the guys and gals who got assigned to work on the V-22 program, as that was what I had wanted (that or the C-130, but I had
pretty good eyesight and those with poor eyesight/corrected vision were sent to fixed wing, at least thats what we were told). When I graduated from
Aircrew school I ended up assigned to Phrogs, oh well.
