The V-22 Osprey is easily one of our favorite aircraft in use today and this picture of it might be the coolest photo of the tiltrotor aircraft ever taken. Because of the haziness and the dust and the focus of the camera, it looks like the Osprey is about to turn on an invisible mode. Even cooler, is how the propellers look like they’re powered by the stars.
