CLARK AIR BASE, Philippines (AP) - The U.S. Marines' newest and in some quarters most controversial transport airplane is showing the world what it's got - for the sake of the victims of Typhoon Haiyan, and perhaps its own future.

There was one at the Cocoa Beach Air Show in 2011 and 2012. Pretty impressive demo. Sad that mismanagement (hydraulic failure and poor training, flew into vortex ring state) led to the death of 23 servicemen during development of the aircraft, but the design and concept are fundamentally sound.
