MV-22 Osprey

A Marine Corps MV-22 Osprey lifts off a runway here. The MV-22 is a tilt-rotor aircraft. When turned toward the sky, the two wing-mounted rotors on the craft allow for a vertical takeoff like a helicopter. When turned forward, the craft flies as an airplane. Air Force officials plan to purchase as many as 50 CV-22 aircraft. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. C. Todd Lopez)
