Interesting video shows an MV-22 Osprey training with U.S. Marine Corps special operations forces

Watch this Osprey conducting rappelling and fast rope-training with USMC special operations forces.

Taken on Jun. 23, 2015 the following footage features U.S. Marines assigned to Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron (VMM) 263, conducting fast-rope and rappelling training with Marine Special Operations Command (MARSOC) personnel near Marine Corps Air Station New River, N.C., to improve MARSOC members infiltration capabilities.

Given to the unique MV-22 ability to fly in all kinds of weather conditions, high and low altitudes, special operations forces infiltration-exfiltration (infil-exfil) is one of the main tasks for USMC Osprey aircrews.
