The New York Times Gives Bloomberg A Pass On The Mayor's Passion For Helicopters

In a frivolous front page puff piece entitled "In His Helicopter, Bloomberg Can Rule Skies, And Even Get To Albany," published below the fold in today's edition of Amerika's newspaper of record, verminous reality reversers of 42nd Street prattle on superficially about Michael Bloomberg, pilot.

The Times even publishes a front page photo of the civilian version of the V22 Osprey tilt rotor Marines chopper that they have bashed in the past. It's twice as small, and costs about twenty times less than the military version. Here's the photo :

As COTT has blogged on in the past, what's interesting about the whole tilt-rotor development program, is that these types of helicopter/fixed wing hybrids aren't all that new or revolutionary: they were first developed by the Nazis as long ago as the mid-1930s. 

It's interesting how the Germans seem to have been first in just about everything, and how this is played down by the spineless equality freaks at the New York Times. 

To help you keep things in perspective, check out this test flight of the world's first tilt rotor, the Focke-Achgelis 223, from 1944 :

I believe that was a helicopter, not a tilt-rotor.

It did, however, seem to be ahead of its time.

Yes, the first true tiltrotor was the XV-3 that first flew in 1955 and completed the first full 90 degree conversion in 1958. Prior to that the Transcendental Model 1-G completed a 70 deg conversion which was the full travel of its design.
