U.S. Marine Corps landing support specialists with Special-Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force Crisis Response – Africa attach a 2180-pound pallet of supplies to a lift cable under an MV-22 Osprey flown by Marines with Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 264 at Morón Air Base, Spain, Jan. 19, 2015. The squadron used the exercise to maintain their proficiency in conducting single-point external lifts with the Osprey, a versatile vehicle capable of completing vertical lifts. On the ground, landing support specialists braced against the Osprey’s hurricane-like downwash to connect a static line to the lift cable, which grounded the aircraft and allowed the team to connect the load without risking static-electric shock.
