    Shit was :bowdown:

    A little bumpy while in the transition, but they take off quick as hell.

    I was surprised by how big the blades were.

    very cool man! We had a CV-22 come to charleston the other day it was werid seeing it fly the transition from vertical to "normal" flight. I think I'd be scared to fly one.

    An aircraft that needs 2 senior pilots, 1 flight engineer, and 2 crewchiefs just to take off isn't meant to fly.

    When I was at Edwards waiting for our ride home to get there we got to see one take off at a roll and transition. I thought it was kinda beautiful. But I don't think my opinion counts because I think that flying an A-10 or AC-130 would be so fucking:cool:

    I bet each A10 pilot would comatose from sporatic ejaculations if they heard their own GAU-8 gun like the way we hear it on the ground

    ERNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN :bowdown::bowdown:

    Sometimes I wish I was deployed in A'stan just for those beauties.

    Oh and best use of money for innovation on the battlefield. Much better than the F22
