On May 15th an MV-22 Osprey flying in Hawaii made a hard landing which killed one Marine and sent 21 others to the hospital. Pervasive among comments of respect for the fallen and injured Marines is a tangible frustration with the Osprey's safety and reliability. The tiltrotor aircraft’s troubled history stretches back to its initial development. During the testing process from 1991 to 2000, pilots suffered a total of 30 fatalities. After going into service, the Osprey developed a reputation for unreliability after a series of high profile crashes. Would you feel safe riding in an Osprey?
