Bell Boeing MV-22 Osprey
@Joint Base Andrews, MD
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.
