Osprey on Purdue campus
Posted by Keyserj on Saturday, September 10, 2022 6:33 PM

I was out and about on the Purdue campus a few days ago and got quite a treat. An Osprey from the VMMT-204 training squadron out of New River North Carolina landed right in the middle of campus. Got to talk to the pilots and even was able to get a tour inside. Figured you guys would appreciate the pics

Oh Boy!

     Between the rotating Engines the other striking thing is the aft fuselage. Certainly brings to mind the word-Aerodynamic??

One question: Where are the carbonite slabs stored?

OK. In the stash: Way too much to build in one lifetime...
