MV22 Osprey Tilt Rotor Helicopters
NYC Fleet Week 2011 ends; Gives Hoboken many treats
Today, the ships that docked in NYC for Fleet Week 2011 bid farewell.
One of my favorite aspects of Fleet Week every year are the surprise fly-by’s we get to enjoy from time to time. The shot below is of two MV22 Osprey Tilt Rotor aircraft flying by as I enjoyed my morning coffee over at the Maxwell Place Pier.
These two hybrid choppers most likely came off the USS New York (LPD 21) – a San Antonio class LPD “Landing Platform Dock” warship.
