Thread: maximum flight range of the Ospey

  1. #1

    Default maximum flight range of the Ospey

    I was just wondering how far can the Osprey fly without have to refuel and can they fit external fuel tanks to the wings and body of the aircraft to increase the range of the Osprey . For example could it fly from New york city to Los Angeles none stop ?

    ..information that is essentially freely available from dozens of open sources.....and whilst no doubt elements are kept secret it is not exactly a secret. Both Boeing and US military official sites list the range...

    SO what exactly is the point of your post?

    Close. NY to LA is 2800 miles. Osprey can go 2200 with auxiliary internal fuel tanks. But no cigar.
