Photos from Afghanistan (April 2010)

A US Marines V-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft kicks up dust as it takes off inside a US Marines base of 3rd Battalion, 6th Marines in Marjah.

The Osprey is my favorite aircraft.

While the idea of the osprey is cool, it is a very poor design when put into practice. It has killed many service members through failures and shotty designs. Its most likely some Generals pet project that he pushed through.
