I think the Marine Corps should get the most credit for keeping the Osprey program alive. They lobbied hard during the dark days of the program when others wanted to kill it. As I recall, the Marines committed to the Osprey once Bell/Boeing agreed to redesign the engines so that they would leak oil :)
Ha ha ha That’s a great post!
Leaking oil :-)
