In 1982, a team of Bell Helicopters and Boeing Helicopters began developing the concept that became the CV-22 Osprey-and aircraft that can takeoff and land like a helicopter and transition to flight as an airplane. More than 200 CV-22 have built and are operated by the Air Force, Navy (CMV-22B) and Marine Corps (MC-22B). The aircraft can carry 24 troops or 20,000 lb. of cargo. It has a maximum cruise speed of 275 mph and a range of more than 850 miles. Interesting fact: The development of the CV-22 was sparked by a failed hostage rescue mission in Iran in 1980.
