30 pilots have *not* died in V-22 crashes. That would suggest that there were at *least* 15 fatal crashes of the aircraft. Not true. Wikipedia puts the number of crashes at 5, with 34 fatalities total, which is reasonably consistent with my own recollection over the years. It's an interesting aircraft that solves some extremely difficult engineering problems. It's difficult to imagine how a country as small as Israel would really realize a worthwhile benefit from such a fast and expensive helicopter though.
