A little shameless self promotion here folks, but as you know in January I spent a few days embedded with VMM-263, the first MV-22 squadron deployed to combat.
As my previous story subtly indicates, I was pretty impressed with the aircraft and was happier to fly 250 mph at 9,000 feet than 150 mph at 300 feet in a war zone situation. Even with the lack of armament -- which we can argue about later -- it seemed a lot safer going fast and high, than slow and low.
Well, I finally put together a video from the footage I shot doing a day of missions with a two ship formation. I posted it on Military.com's Shock and Awe sight, but I also wanted to show you all so you could slice and dice the performance.
I hope you enjoy it.
