The V-22 Osprey after all these years conducted its' first mission. This was one of the USAF SAR birds in the US flying a search mission for a crashed civilian airplane. It was based at Kirtland AFB, NM. Unfortunately there were no survivors, so no rescue could be carried out.
The USMC has deployed a squadron to Anbar Province, Iraq; but no word if they have flown a combat mission yet.
