    Pics were taken outside of my house on base i couldn't get a good pic of the helicopter that was flying around (way to low by the area of filming)

    Ah yeas, the only rotary wing aircraft known for suddenly, and reularly falling out of the sky.

    That's cool. Always thought those were neat aircraft. Just need to work the bugs out of them.

    Hmm, sounds cool to me. I always loved the Osprey. Wonder if it's a TF, or one of the humans' vehicles?

    I kinda wish they used that thing for Soundwave, I can totally see that working.

    I think it's one of the military planes that were described in the reviews (can't remember which one), and that the helicopter he saw was Vortex.

    Speaking of which, did the helicopter look like this?

    Out of curiosity , exactly how do we know its gonna be in the movie? It could just be there for general wargame excercises like all modern warbirds nowadays . Also Holloman is the home of the F-117 nighthawk and very soon the F-22 raptor . Would they be listed too as TFTM castlist aswell if someone catches a glimpse of them flying round ar exactly the same time of filming?

    Okay, that helicopter flying over that AFB makes it appearing in the TF movie how? It is an active base, is it not?

    The Offspray is a Marine/Navy aircraft and not an Airforce aircraft. Why would it be at or around an airforce base? I think it's likely it's in the movie. Besides, these things look cool.

    Quote from frontpage:
    "For those of you who don't know, the V22 Osprey is the aircraft that looks like an airplane but can rotate the propellers so that it can take off Vertically and exhibit some limited helicopter like abilities."

    Ah, so, it's like a transformer in its own right! :)

    Pretty cool little dude actually. The blades become the arms at the elbows. And they have guns at the tip of all the blades.

    So in combat Makeshift can unleash a hail of bullets (like Rhinox) or open them up as blade weapons, or spin them really fast to make a shield.

    Also although I've been generally sour on minicons in general the Emergency Team has been above average since they're basicly Targetmasters which I like.

    the other helicpoter looked like a normal civil one, and the main reason i said it might be in the movie is beacuse it did two or three low level passes over the fliming area and everyone on base this friday had the day off. It took off from close to the filming area flew around and then landed back in the same area. this is the first time seeing the osprey here (didn't even show up for the airshow)
