3. Don't rule out vertical lift just yet

From Jan. 14:
It didn't take long for the chattering class to start writing the obituary for the AgustaWestland AW609 TiltRotor shortly after a prototype crashed recently, killing the crew. And if you think you've seen this movie before, you have. The detractors of the AW609's big brother, the V-22 Osprey, hauled out the same tired, old sheet music Luddites have been croaking to out-of-tune since Icarus strapped on a pair of wings, when the first V-22 went down more than two decades ago.
