Chris M. scooped me, but I just couldn’t let a visit from the MV-22 Osprey tiltrotor pass without geeking out. I love airplanes, but the Osprey is by far the coolest toy in the inventory. So when I heard we were getting a fly-in for Marine Week Boston, I had to go see.
The weather was actually gorgeous yesterday, except for the 10 minutes at the proposed takeoff time. Well worth the spring shower, although I could have done without the coating of dirt (note to future Coure 16ers: that downwash is no joke).
