On behalf of the entire Bell Boeing V-22 team, welcome to Osprey News Online. We hope you’ll stop by often for the latest and greatest V-22 news and information.
2010 continues to be another landmark year in the evolution of the V-22 Osprey Program. In combat and humanitarian deployments around the world, the proven Osprey has changed the way missions are accomplished for our U.S. Marine Corps and Air Force Special Operations Command customers.
The two services now have numerous consecutive and highly successful deployments to their credit, covering Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, South America, Africa, and amphibious operations with Marine Expeditionary Units (MEU). 2010 finds one Marine MV-22 tiltrotor squadron conducting high-intensity combat operations in Afghanistan, while others perform contingency operations with MEUs, including humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, first in Haiti and now in Pakistan. The Air Force continues to utilize their CV-22 variants to execute covert special operations missions around the globe.
Meanwhile, here at home, the Bell Boeing team remains focused on refining, improving, and expanding our core competencies as we manufacture and market the world’s most revolutionary aircraft.
I invite you now to explore the pages on this Web site to learn more about the incredible V-22 Osprey. We hope you’ll learn something new about the aircraft and, more importantly, about the remarkable servicemen and women who fly and maintain it each and everyday. The Bell Boeing team, which includes the thousands of dedicated men and women who work on every aspect of the V-22 program, are honored to provide America’s troops with this transformational tiltrotor.
Executive Director, Bell Boeing V-22 Program
