Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey

23-10-2013

Monday, October 21 visited this tiltrotor aircraft of the U.S. Air Force Maritime Airport De Kooy from the British airbase Mildenhall to explore our airport

Characteristics of the Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey are the double tail and short broad wings with the engines mounted on the tips and two huge three-bladed rotors which also serve as propellers.

The plane can land vertically like a helicopter, but also land as a normal plane, horizontal,  to turn the rotors to 45 ° . To ship the Osprey, the wing around the Z-axis can be rotated and the rotors may be folded. This whole process only takes between 90 and 120 seconds to complete

The Osprey has the capacity to transport up to 24 men with full combat equipment or 9072 kg internal  to 6804 kg external cargo transport. The load compartment can be equipped to carry a hospital consisting of 9 cabins with medical personnel and equipment.
