Hurlburt CV-22s plan flyover

The 8th Special Operations Squadron from Hurlburt Field, Fla., will conduct a CV-22 Osprey flyover at the start of the Alabama-Clemson college national championship game in Tampa, Fla., Monday night. The two-ship flyover is planned prior to kickoff at the end of the national anthem. The CV-22 Osprey is a tilt-rotor aircraft with vertical takeoff, hover and vertical landing qualities but the long range and speed of a turboprop aircraft.
