Fast-Roping


10/22/2008 - Special forces members disembark from CV-22 Osprey aircraft assigned to the 8th and 71st Special Operations Squadrons during a fast-roping demonstration at Hurlburt Field, Fla., on Oct. 22, 2008. The simulation provided members of Congress with a realistic view of special operation missions during their tour of the base.

Ah... we here on the High Plains of New Mexico will be seeing the same sort of thing, complete with CV-22s, in the very near future! I doubt we'll have much congressional interest, tho (outside of NM's congresscritters), as Clovis ain't exactly the Florida Panhandle with all its many charms and fine beaches.
