Photos: Two Osprey Aircraft At Bermuda Airport

December 12, 2016 | 7 Comments

Two Osprey aircraft  landed at the LF Wade International Airport today [Dec 12] with the reason for their visit unclear, however it is not unusual for military aircraft to stop off in Bermuda while en-route to other destinations.

In describing the plane, the US Air Force website says, “The CV-22 Osprey is a tiltrotor aircraft that combines the vertical takeoff, hover and vertical landing qualities of a helicopter with the long-range, fuel efficiency and speed characteristics of a turboprop aircraft. Its mission is to conduct long-range infiltration, exfiltration and resupply missions for special operations forces.”

    Terry, the CV22 has a range of 1,000 miles which means they can fly from here to the east coast of the US. They can also be refueled in flight.
