An MV-22B Osprey tiltrotor aircraft lifts off from a hilltop during Exercise Talisman Saber 17 on Townshend Island, Shoalwater Bay Training Area, Queensland, Australia, July 18, 2017. The MV-22B is the Marine Corps’ only tiltrotor aircraft. It lifts-off like a helicopter, but tilts its rotors forward mid-flight to fly like an airplane. The Osprey belongs to Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 265 (Reinforced), part of the Aviation Combat Element for the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit. The 31st MEU is taking part in Talisman Saber 17 while deployed on a regularly-scheduled patrol of the Indo-Asia-Pacific region. Talisman Saber is a biennial exercise designed to improve the interoperability between Australian and U.S. forces.
