Blending the best of helicopters and airplanes, the MV-22 Osprey tiltrotor shows its stuff during Marine Week in Cleveland
The V-22 Osprey tiltrotor's speed and fast-climb capability reduce the risk of flying in and out of hostile landing zones. Its hover is stable enough that a sniper can shoot on-target from its belly. Last year, a Marine Osprey crew plucked a downed Air Force F-15 pilot out of unfriendly Libyan territory, reinforcing its tactical value. Four of the revolutionary aircraft are in Cleveland for Marine Week, to show what they can do.
