The only sources are subscription, but it appears that a new ingestion problem has been found with the V-22s. The accident in Hawaii appears to be
related to sand being ingested, possibly through the bleed doors, while the aircraft was in a hover. This means that they're going to have to take
another look at the 2010 Afghanistan crash that killed four people. The cause of the crash has been put down to pilot error, but if they were in a
hover at the time, and ingested sand or dirt, leading to a power loss, then there wasn't much the crew could have done. Currently the word is that
the military is going to restrict operations in conditions that could lead to an ingestion. They're also saying that it could be years before a fix
is figured out.
More will be provided once non-subscription sources are available.
