Not to put too fine of a point on it, Sultan, and as much as I love the Osprey, I recall that in the early 00's Bell / Boeing had a less than modest problem with "will it ever IOC" when the Navy had to shut down it's V-22 training pipeline for two+ years because there was No aircraft to feed those new pilots into. How soon YOU forget. Or did that hit too close to home for you, eh?
