With only 34 fatalities.
The Bell Boeing-built V-22 Osprey fleet surpassed 100,000 flight hours during a Feb. 10 U.S. Marine Corps combat mission in Afghanistan, officials at the Naval Air Systems Command V-22 Joint Program Office said. "The entire Bell Boeing tiltrotor team congratulates our Marine Corps and U.S. Air Force Special Operations Command customers on achieving 100,000 flight hours and counting," said John Rader, executive director of the Bell Boeing V-22 Program. "The performance of the aircraft in combat and humanitarian missions has been truly remarkable, and we continue to take great pride in providing our customers with this revolutionary capability."
