V-22 Osprey: Time may hate it, but PopSci loves it

Popular Science has included the Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey in its “The Best of What’s New” list for 2007. Not bad for an aircraft that entered development 25 years ago. Makes up for Time magazine’s shoddy “special investigation” into the V-22, and gives me an excuse to run this great picture of a US Air Force Special Operations CV-22, somewhere in New Mexico.

In case you wondered, other winners in PopSci’s “best of 2007″ aviation & space category include Cessna’s Flycatcher, sorry Skycatcher light sport aircraft, Boeing’s EA-18G Growler “jammer jet”, and Eclipse’s Concept Jet (maybe they will build it now).
