I heard from an employee of Boeing's Helicopter Division that Boeing and Airbus are in talks about cooperating on the design and construction of a new helicopter. I could get nothing more from him. Anyone know more details?

The Philadelphia Boeing Aircraft plant builds the V-22 Osprey. Which if they can get the kinks worked out, I know Boeing would like to market as a short haul commuter a/c. I wonder if Boeing is talking to Airbus about a combination on the civillian Osprey?

UALPHLCS - Boeing were working on a civilian version of the Osprey, the Bell Boeing 609. Boeing decided to get out of the commercial helicopter business, and now Bell is teamed with Agusta on the project, now called the Bell/Agusta 609.
