Here's what may replace the V-22s. Double the speed and 1/3 the price, plus a whole lot simpler mechanically:

Those V-22's are always nice to see when they flew into Pier 6.

The V-22 nearly got cancelled. For years the test aircraft kept killing their crews by just 'falling out of the sky'. It took a while to figure out what was going on and how to fix it.

I've been seeing it and several Osprey V-22s every few days for weeks now. I have a nice high window looking over the Hudson.

Known as AWAC .... probably in the air because of the location of the new President. No-Fly Zones.

Maybe this news development will cancel all the helicopter flights up the Hudson?

That's a Grumman E-2C Hawkeye. It's an airborne early-warning aircraft with a ton of communications gear aboard. It's small enough to fly from an aircraft carrier-

Resized Image


I saw a plane like this coming up the Hudson this afternoon. Is this a spy plane?
