This Osprey landed not at Huntsville International but downtown at the Von Braun Center for a conference

that was taking place. These will be used in Iraq later this year.

Developed to perform USMC, Navy and Special Operations command combat missions, the V-22 tilt wing aircraft is a breakthrough in aviation.

Speecking of unusual aircraft;

I live near Dublin park which is close to the Airport, and this past Tuesday I was outside at around 6:00P.M. and I hear roaring in the sky. At first I did not think anything about it because again I live near the Airport and hearing air traffic is normal around there. But this time it caught my attention because it was a lot louder, so I look up not seeing anything at first but then I see two fight jet that was no more then a few thousand feet above my house. I figured later that they were probably up there in purperation(spl) for the President coming to town. Did anyone else witness these two air craft.

The FAA is investigating two suspected incursions of the temporary flight restriction around Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant that was being visited by President Bush. One aircraft, a Piper PA-28, was escorted to a landing by two F-22 fighters, but a Cessna 303 reportedly ignored the military aircraft and landed elsewhere.
