More Ospreys in Action

In spite of what the Marine Corps has labeled as "an aggressive media silence" around VMM-263's performance in Iraq (couched in "force protection" terms), photos are trickling out that provide evidence of the following:

- The "Thunder Chickens" are flying.

- The area they're flying over is light brown without much, if any, vegitation.

- For some of the sorties the Ospreys are outfitted with a ramp-mounted gun.

To add anything else would be conjecture and journalistically irresponsible. (And you know we hate that.) So just enjoy the cool photos.
