Osprey Report

A Pentagon review panel decided today that the experimental V-22 tilt-rotor aircraft known as the Osprey is not yet ready for deployment but should proceed to its next phase of development. Critics have said the design is flawed and that the program should be shelved. Four of the prototypes have crashed so far, and two crashes in the last 18 months cost the lives of 23 American servicemen. NPR's Tom Gjelten reports from the Pentagon.
