RAF Mildenhall --
Dawn breaks over Airmen of the 352nd Special Operations Maintenance Squadron readying to launch CV-22 Ospreys Jan. 17, 2017, at RAF Mildenhall, England.
These maintainers represent five career fields working night and day to ensure the CV-22 is prepared to deliver its one-of-a-kind combination of speed, range and operational flexibility for special operations missions.
Maintenance personnel and aircrew work closely together before and after every flight to keep their Osprey fleet capable of bringing a combination of speed and vertical-lift capability not met by any other existing fixed-or rotary-wing platform.
