CAMP LIBERTY, Iraq - Carrying Marines, an MV-22B Osprey, tilt-rotor aircraft approaches for a landing at Liberty Command Pad on Camp Liberty March 19. Ospreys were officially approved for military service in 2005, after 16 years of development, and went into full production that same year. The Marine Corps is the lead service for the aircraft, however, the U.S. Air Force also has a variant of the craft which is designated as the CV-22B. The craft flies like a plane but lands and takes off like a helicopter.
