Chicken Osprey Kiev!  :P




SOURCE

Not the greatest pictures, but they're pretty cool nonetheless, I think. I mean... who'd have thought? US Ospreys over Kiev. Looks like something straight from a 1990's Clancy/Bond/Brown/Robinson/... technothriller or some Call of Duty game.

Going by the appaent dark color of those Ospreys, I would hazard a guess they are CV-22Bs from AFSOCOM.  Be interesting to know why they are there.

On a RC forum, somebody posted pics from the ground, and:

"""""""""""""""""
On Friday, September 25, an aerial tribute commemorating the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II will take place over the National Mall and Potomac River. Organized by the Arsenal of Democracy Flyover, the aerial tribute will include over 55 WW II era airplanes flying in historical sequence formations representing the significant battles of WW II and ending with the missing man formation.

The live stream will include special programming, including interviews with WW II heroes, starting at 10:00 AM ET. Live coverage of the first formation approaching the National Mall will start at approximately 11:30 AM ET.
