Osprey Operations in Afghanistan

SLDinfo has interviewed the Osprey squadron before they went to Afghanistan, and the squadron commander recently with regard to the operations of the MV-22 in Afghanistan. In that context, here are two videos showing the MV-22 operating in Afghanistan:

  • The first video shows the Osprey being used in an operation, including transporting a wounded Marine.
  • The second shows the Osprey returning from action : in the words of a Marine watching the bed down “it looks like a transformer” as the Osprey beds down.
