Why do we even have these flying coffins?
None meme answer: its a logistical work horse. Its still safer compared to most helicopters if you compared their crash rates.
>safer compared to most helicopters
You want to show us the numbers on that? There's no way that the tiltrotor nightmare here hasn't had more accidents than your average Bell
Sure. There's been 51 H-60 crashes and 6 V-22 crashes in the past 10 years, while there's 2,800 H-60s and 450 V-22s, meaning the H-60 has an extra ~20 crashes versus the V-22 proportional to fleet size.
the normalization of total ignorance of statistics in favor of anecdotes in the right has done a shitload of damage

Why are you pushing this myth?
Fleet size doesn't mean a thing when it comes to aircraft accidents. At the time of the 737 MAX's introduction, there were only a few in the world... quite a few crashed. What is actually relevant is how OFTEN these are sortied, and on what kinds of missions. Average flight hours per accident is a much more accurate statistic.
number of sorties matters, flight time matters, fleet size matters. it all matters - we just don't have all of that info. nobody here is smart enough to make heads or tails of it anyway. this thread is for talking shit only
>Fleet size doesn't mean a thing when it comes to aircraft accidents. At the time of the 737 MAX's introduction, there were only a few in the world... quite a few crashed.
What do you mean
Not many 737 MAXs out there, quite a few crashed, the ratio is fucking terrible for the 737 MAX for good reason. What point were you trying to make?
he made the same mistake as people who dont understand black crime stats lmao
Jesus burger helis suck.
1 osprey costs $84 million
I still don't understand why PrepHole doesn't automatically ban someone who just posts a greentext/reaction image reply.
My dad was one of the engineers for the turbines and test pilots for those, his best friend died in a test flight and my mom made him quit. He designed, flew, and crashed a lot of other cool stuff like the huey 800 and rah66 but the osprey was the last straw.
US helicopters suck.
The V-22 is an amazing aircraft because it was once a total deathtrap that a more sensible government would have stopped funding the development of, but thanks to my former local congressman Curt Weldon and his pork barrel politics it was kept alive to save the Boeing plant here a ended up an excellent and revolutionary aircraft.
However, bad news for Boeing in Ridley now is that the same tech from the V22 is what Bell used to win the Blackhawk replacement contract. Now, unless more V22 orders come in or a lot more Chinooks get bought that plant is in trouble.
