MV-22 Osprey

A Marine Corps MV-22 Osprey lands here April 2 on its way to an air show at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. Air Force Special Operations Command is expected to get 50 CV-22s, an Air Force-modified version of the MV-22, starting November 2006. Designed to conduct long-range missions, the tilt-rotor aircraft offers increased speed and range over other rotary-wing aircraft. Two CV-22s are currently at Edwards AFB, Calif., undergoing operational testing. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Greg Davis)
