USS George Washington provides Ospreys expeditious refueling point

A sailor begins pumping fuel into an MV-22B Osprey tiltrotor aircraft aboard the USS George Washington Nov. 20 during Operation Damayan. The Osprey is a unique asset for the operation due to its vertical takeoff and landing capabilities, and its ability to convert quickly into a fixed-wing configuration, giving it increased speed and range. The Osprey is with the 3rd Marine Expeditionary Brigade's aviation combat element, and is supporting the Government of the Philippines by providing relief supplies and airlift capabilities for citizens affected by Typhoon Haiyan. The sailor is an aviation boatswain’s mate (fuel) with the USS George Washington, George Washington Carrier Strike Group.
