All the Bell pictures have been so blurred or blacked out. Other pictures are out there, but they seem to think their tilt-prop solution is novel enough to protect. Not really my area, so I couldn't even tell you what is so special about the unblurred pics.

The aircraft is 100% and ready to go, but they haven't hit their test cards yet.

Making good progress, I'd say and they are being cautious. Lots of people are watching this to declare tilt rotors are a bust. The V-22 haters are waiting like vultures. Hence, caution.

No, they're still gunshy after the 525 crash, so they're being extra cautious this time.

With luck, although I'm not holding my breath, they're going to fly again tomorrow.

Busy time the last few days. Stratolaunch taxied Saturday too.

Going by their announced test plan, I'm not sure the first flight went as well as hoped. No flight today, but all kinds of other things.
