The V-22 combines the vertical take-off ability of the helicopter with the speed of an aircraft. The model has numerous features, such as: transparent cockpit windows, optional short or extended refueling boom, tilting engines and exchangeable closed or open cargo hatch. VMM-161 was at its formation back in 1951 the first helicopter unit in the world to utilize helicopters. A good reason to develop the first Osprey in the colors of this squadron.

Bell Boeing MV-22B Osprey

Designed to meet a US military need for a VTOL aircraft that could carry combat troops, the V-22 Osprey was first flown on March 19, 1989. This multi-mission aircraft has an instantly recognizable appearance, and has been steeped in controversy almost since its inception. With its tiltrotor design, the Osprey can perform the same tasks as a conventional helicopter, but it has the speed and range of a turboprop aircraft. Several catastrophic crashes early in its service led the media to decry it as overpriced and unsafe, but the military disagreed and the aircraft has remained in service, successfully completing combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
