Military Photo: Dusty Osprey

Posted: 07/01/2010

An MV-22B Osprey with Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 365 lands in "brown out" conditions during routine missions, July 15. Osprey and other helicopter pilots face these types of landings every day as they support ANSF and NATO forces across the Helmand and Nimroz provinces in southern Afghanistan. It takes all of the pilots and crew chiefs to successfully land in these conditions as they have to determine how close the ground is and ensure there are no obstacles through the billowing dust. These aircraft provide a vital service to the ANSF and NATO forces serving here, delivering supplies, cargo, troops and VIPs every day. Photo by Gunnery Sgt. Steven Williams
