A U.S. Marine Corps MV-22B Osprey executes a vertical take off from the flight deck of the amphibious assault ship USS Wasp (LHD 1) as another waits to launch during flight operations in the Atlantic Ocean on Nov. 15, 2005. The Osprey is an advanced technology, vertical/short takeoff and landing multipurpose tactical aircraft and is scheduled to replace the aging CH-46E Sea Knight and CH-53D Sea Stallion helicopters currently in service. These Ospreys are assigned to Marine Tiltrotor Operational Test and Evaluation Squadron 22 of Marine Corps Air Station New River, N.C.
