100th Osprey Hits The Skies

The 100th V-22 Osprey assembled by Bell Helicopter in Amarillo is now in operation.

This picture is the first photograph of the 92nd MV-22 produced and delivered to the United States Marine Corps.

Eight CV-22's have been delivered to the United States Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) so far.

Military officials said earlier this year that they hope to sign a deal that would produce 167 more Ospreys over the next five years.
