Osprey debuts at Marine Helicopter Squadron (HMX) 1

Marine Helicopter Squadron (HMX) 1 Marines, past and present, family members and friends mingle on the flight line with the newest addition to the squadron, an MV-22 B 'Osprey,' after an MV-22B Introduction Ceremony in the HMX-1 hangar May 4 in Quantico, Va. The aircraft, built by Bell-Boeing under direction from the V-22 Joint Program Office (PMA-275), is the first of 12 to be delivered to HMX-1.

The HMX-1 Ospreys will conduct presidential support missions, meaning these aircraft will carry presidential support staff and news media representatives traveling with the president. The HMX-1 Osprey mission does not include carrying the President of the United States.
