Marine Ospreys Doing "touch and goes" @ Santa Monica Airport in Los Angeles
I thought I heard a large Chanook approaching out of the east, but when I went out side 4 Osprey were flying in formation into the santa monica airport. About 10 minutes later they did the same thing. Unusual activity for this small private airport.

I am wondering if this has anything to do with the exercise that the Oregon F-15's are participating in. I have noticed an upping of the Military presence and ops over L.A. Basin as of late.

Neat plane to watch ... as long as you are beyond their crash distance!!!

I have seen them fly several times now, including vertical take offs and landings ... and personally would NOT like to ride in one. I have no fear of flying almost anything else ... but those things give me the bejeebees when I just watch them. NO SAFETY MARGIN at all unlike fixed wing aircraft or even helicopters.

Not a usual military aircraft around here. Usually only helicopters going up the coast from one base to the next.

Ospreys are cool!

I love watching them take off - when the propellers move from top to side (front facing) as they fly.

Watched some a couple times in Aug.

Personal responsibility - try it sometime. Quit blaming others for your bad choices. Consequences happen.

Yeah it was pretty neat to see. I have never seen them in person. There are not the most sneaky thing. They are almost as loud as a Cobra, I could hear that low bassy THUUUMP, from pretty far away.
