“It descends from the heavens. Ironically it unleashes hell.” reads the ad, which ran in the National Journal and in the Armed Forces Journal.
Boeing and Bell officials agreed that the ad — touting the capabilities of the vertical-lift Osprey aircraft — was ill-conceived and should never have been published.
The ad also stated:
“Before you hear it, you see it. By the time you see it, it’s too late.
The CV-22 delivers Special Forces to insertion points never thought possible.

Capabilities extended. Options multiplied. Missions accomplished.”
