[Video] An inside look from the Air Force CV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft

Taken from different POV (Pointsof View) the following video shows the CV-22 Osprey as it lands at the National Museum of the United States Air Force, in Dayton, Ohio, on Dec. 12, 2013.

The (somehow controversial) CV-22  will be one of the highlights of the museum’s new 224,000 square-foot building where the tilt-rotor aircraft will tell both the story of the Osprey in the Air Force Special Operations Command, and the culminations of decades of research and development, from the early tilt-rotor prototype, the Bell Helicopter Textron XV-3.

Two CV-22 Osprey of the AFSOC were hit by small arms fire during an evacuation mission from South Sudan last month.
