I went to the Kirtland AFB this past weekend to show off one of our C-5's. While I was working most of the day I did find a little time to sneak away and get a few pictures. Check out the Gallery (http://www.pbase.com/stevo71/kirtland_afb) and leave a message if you'd like.

Here's an alien challenge -- get a full-disc prop/rotor blur on the Osprey when in forward flight shot from the ground. Ha! :1zhelp: :dunno: :thumbsup:

I don't even think Victor could do that! Those Osprey props turn pretty darn slow. The only thing I've been able to find so far (http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/systems/aircraft/v-22-propulsion.htm) shows prop RPM at 397... that would take a long shutter delay to get a full prop blur.

I'm not even sure if Victor could get a full prop blur out of the Osprey. The only thing I've been able to find so far (http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/systems/aircraft/v-22-propulsion.htm) lists the prop RPM at 397 max cont power... pretty darn slow to get a full prop disk if you ask me.

Therein lies the challenge! Is he "Flight 19" alien, or just "Spaceballs"? :D
