Bell Boeing MV-22 Osprey

@Joint Base Andrews, MD

May 2011

A USMC Osprey basks in the morning light of the Joint Service Open House airshow.  The Marines have been operational with the MV-22 since June 2007, gradually replacing the Boeing CH-46 Sea Knight which will be retired by 2019.  The V-22’s speed and range enable personnel and cargo to be transported faster and farther than is possible with legacy helicopters.  Nikon D300 w/18-200mm, processing with Aperture.
