Aero-News Quote of the Day
"All Ospreys in flight operation have the modifications,
including those that are deployed. The modifications have also been
fully incorporated into the V-22 production line so that new
aircraft will not require further modification after leaving the
factory... Since this incident, 100 percent of the V-22 fleet has
had the mods installed and there have been no additional
occurrences of incidents of this type."

Investigators have determined an in-flight fire that broke out
onboard a Bell-Boeing Marine Corps MV-22B Osprey during a training
flight last year was caused by hydraulic fluid leaking onto an
exhaust cooling component in the aircraft's left engine nacelle.
The report also notes a similar fire broke out in the same section
on another Osprey earlier that year. The Marines described that
incident as a "minor nacelle fire," and noted modifications were
underway to alleviate the problem, which stems from spikes in
hydraulic pressure that may fracture the lines.
