Air Force Ospreys made history, flying in a large 10-aircraft formation for the first time. On Feb. 3, six CV-22s from the 8th Special Operations Squadron at Hurlburt Field, FL., and four from the 20th Special Operations Squadron at Cannon AFB, N.M., flew in formation for a training mission at Hurlburt, according to a Hurlburt release. Video of the flight shows the 10 Ospreys flying side by side over the base’s flightline. The flight showed the versatility and global reach “they need to get after the enemy,” Col. Thomas Palenske, commander of the 1st Special Operations Wing, said.
