MV-22B Ospreys Support Operation Damayan

Philippine citizens board an MV-22B Osprey at Tacloban Air Base, Nov. 16 as part of Operation Damayan. The Osprey provides a unique capability in this type of operation due to its vertical takeoff and landing capabilities and its ability to convert quickly to fixed wing configuration, giving it increased speed and range. The Osprey, with 3rd Marine Expeditionary Brigade aviation combat element, III Marine Expeditionary Force, is supporting the government of the Philippines in providing relief supplies and airlift capability for citizens affected by Typhoon Haiyan.
