Real-life Transformer Aircraft: V-22 Hybrid Helicopter/Airplane Starting-up

U.S. Marines with Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron (VMM) 268, Marine Aircraft Group (MAG) 16, 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW), perform a “Hollywood” start-up, starting both aircraft simultaneously, and conduct a resupply of opposition force during Mountain Training Exercise 1-2015 (MTNEX 1-15).

The Bell Boeing V-22 Osprey is an American multi-mission, military, tiltrotor aircraft with both a vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL), and short takeoff and landing (STOL) capability. It is designed to combine the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high-speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft.
