Nice photos. However, both aircraft at RIAT were MV-22As not Bs. One of the reasons that the precautionary divert to Iceland was executed on the flight across the pond is that VMX-22's aircraft are not equipped with the engine deicing equipment that is on the Block B aircraft that FMF squadrons will be flying.

A nice, rare scene. Somewhat slower shutter speed would've been good.

Nice photo but an weird ugly looking aircraft. I like the fast shutter showing the props nicely.

Curious what squadron these birds are from. They appear to be a gun-metal grey color in this picture, which I have never seen before. I'm used to the flat light grey. The crews from Cherry Point MCAS are a pleasure to work with from an ATC standpoint. Great shot!

Nice pic but dangerous planes to be in due to the high mechanical stresses them rotors experience on the gear box. This design is not the future guys !
