Now for something a little different… Earlier today I heard a “strange” aircraft. I was not quite sure what it was but quickly forgot about it. I happened to be out by the airport when I noticed a couple of USMC C-130Js on the apron. USAF (or Air National Guard) C-130s aren’t all that rare – they often stop off here before staring or ending the hop over the “pond.” USMC, well, that is different.
When I went down there were three MV-22B Ospreys on the apron. But not just any Ospreys – they were from HMX-1, the USMC squadron responsible for transporting the United States President (no matter who they are :-)).
