An MV-22 Osprey maneuvers on the flight deck of the aircraft carrier USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77) during test operations. George H.W. Bush is in the Atlantic Ocean conducting carrier qualifications. According to Capt. Brian Block this is the first time an MV-22 has made a landing on an aircraft carrier.

With as often as the subject of the MV-22 had come up at Lex’s place, I felt it fitting to share this photo of the first carrier landing of a MV-22. I’m a little surprised it hadn’t happened sooner.
