The CH-46 experienced 44

The CH-46 experienced 44 Class A mishaps during it's first five years of service, including several that broke up in flight due to station 410 failures. No comparison whatsoever between the CH-46 and the Osprey. The difference is night and day.

"Even counting two crashes of Air Force CV-22Bs in the past two years, the Osprey's safety record has been exceptionally good since the aircraft was redesigned and retested a decade ago. Since Oct. 1, 2001, three Ospreys have crashed with a loss of six lives. During the same period, the U.S. military has lost 414 helicopters at a cost of 606 deaths." Richard Whittle 9 July 2012
