              I heard that Lurch. I had the plans to get out either an E-7 or 8, But had to retire as a Cpl. That beats a dead Cpl. I should have fought it, but didn't know I could. Thats the way the ole ball rolls. Glad he got out a good rank, and is doing well. Have a good one. Semper Fi, and READY-APP.

                      sorry fact

                      I do not like the va telling me/us, that we will all be dead by 2015. There is susposed to be 399 of us dying every day, and its not going to be long before they say we will all be gone. The money they spend researching that, it could help many Vets. I have come to the conclusion that half the people working for them now was the ones we were being spit on by. Had I come home through an Airport, and been spit on and called everything, I was going to go to jail. Thats after busting some heads so they would not be able to do it after that.

                        Been Doing alot of research on the V-22 . Only 5 crashes and 8 notable incidents in 20 years is pretty damn good ! NO it's not the 46 ! it doesn't have to be ! I think they should remod the 46 and build em both !

                          Don't forget the 46 had it's growing problems with the aft pylon failures in the air and on the ground. Lost a lot of good friends because of a manufacturing defect! Love the phrog but give the 22 a chance.

                            Lurch, my down on the 22 is because they can not be kept in an up status, without major maintenance. Its hard to get the critical parts even now. It'll be bad if they need them up, and can not get the parts. I agree with you. I'd say half needs to be 22, and half the 46-upgraded. Semper Fi, and READY-APP.

                              Tim, I believe 20 plus years is enough time to be given. The 46 problem was taken care of in less time, thats for sure. The 46 will end up being sold, then when the 22 is grounded for certain, just what are they going to do then? Yes, there were good friends lost on the 46, but I bet its a draw on the casualities so far, and how many friends were lost in the 22 crashes? They don't matter? They were someones friends too. Its 2-3 million- 46, verses 75 to 80 plus million per unit-22. I could half way care less anymore, as I don't have to fly on it, or fight in it. It'll never do what the 46 still can, That I know. It may swoop over the trees , but a button hook, with no guns that can be used for very long without making the user sick, it can't go into combat zones. The 46 still can, and will for awhile longer. I'm tired of paying taxes for something that will in a year or so have to be scraped. But what do I know? Semper Fi, and READY-APP.

                                Have to get the Japanese to build them then. Boeing sold the license to build 46's to them years ago. --In 1965, Boeing Vertol sold the manufacturing rights of the 107 to Kawasaki Heavy Industries. Under this arrangement, all Model 107 civilian and military aircraft built in Japan are known as KV 107--

                                But in a related development-On 15 December 2006, Columbia Helicopters, Inc acquired the type certificate for the Boeing Vertol 107-II, and is in the process of acquiring a Production Certificate from the FAA. Plans for actual production of the aircraft have not been announced.
