IN FOCUS Flight of the Osprey 42 BOEING FRONTIERS / MARCH 2013 A U.S. Air Force CV-22A from the 71st Special Operations Squadron at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico performs a training flight earlier this year over central New Mexico. The CV-22 is a special operations version of the Bell- Boeing V-22 Osprey. Another version, the MV-22, is operated by the U.S. Marine Corps. The V-22’s unique tilt-rotor configuration gives it the capability to cruise like a fixed-wing aircraft and take off and land vertically like a helicopter. The Osprey has been used extensively on military missions in Afghanistan and Iraq. PHOTO: JIM HASELTINE/HIGH-G PRODUCTIONS
