Osprey Ok to Fly

It takes off like a helicopter but flies like a plane, and now after an exhaustive round of tests, Marine Corps officials are giving the Osprey the ok.

Flying the MV-22 Osprey was suspended for 17 months after a couple of crashes that killed 23 marines. For the tilt-rotor aircraft to move forward, Congress has to sign off on a 50-point-five billion dollar program that could carry troops into battle as soon as 2007.
