Air Force 1 Aircraft (Series 1) A00012A
Bell Boeing MV-22B Osprey Diecast Model
USMC VMM-264 Black Knights, EH00, MCAS New River, NC

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Bell Boeing MV-22B Osprey   9.5"   14.25"

The Black Knights transitioned to the Osprey in 2009. The unit has a long tradition of supporting humanitarian missions worldwide. The latest being its deployment to Liberia in October 2014 to provide logistical support for the battle against the Ebola outbreak in Africa.

Please note: Unlike prior releases in this series, this particular model does not include a set of "folded" rotor blades for displaying the model in the stowed configuration. The wing and engine nacelles do still rotate, but sadly the packaging has empty slots where the folded blades would usually be found and it appears the manufacturer simply chose not to produce them for this model.

Bell Boeing MV-22B Osprey

Designed to meet a US military need for a VTOL aircraft that could carry combat troops, the V-22 Osprey was first flown on March 19, 1989. This multi-mission aircraft has an instantly recognizable appearance, and has been steeped in controversy almost since its inception. With its tiltrotor design, the Osprey can perform the same tasks as a conventional helicopter, but it has the speed and range of a turboprop aircraft. Several catastrophic crashes early in its service led the media to decry it as overpriced and unsafe, but the military disagreed and the aircraft has remained in service, successfully completing combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
