Osprey Star of Free Open House

Osprey Star of Free Open House

One of the world’s more remarkable aircraft is coming to Yakima, Wash., for a two-hour visit Tuesday. And don’t miss the back story.

The aircraft is a Bell Boeing MV-22 Osprey, a military transport that flies like a plane but lands like a helicopter. This particular one is part of U.S. Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 161, the “Greyhawks” of VMM-161, based in Miramar, Calif. The Osprey is scheduled to make a stop at the McAllister Museum of Aviation from 1:15 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. and will be available to the public for tours at that time. There is no charge.

The aircraft will be flown by Marine Corps Capt. Benjamin Tate, a native of Yakima, who will be available for interviews and recruiting, along with other Marines.
