USS Wyoming And An Osprey
From the Submarine Group TEN Facebook page, this is just completely cool:
From the caption: "A V-22 Osprey from Air Force Special Operations Command performs a proof of concept for personnel evactuation from the Ohio-class ballistic missile submarine USS Wyoming (SSBN 742) June 6. Wyoming is currently at sea performing routine operations."
Have you ever been part of a "proof of concept" operation? Closest I did was being on the target of the first attempted OPEVAL of the Mk 50 torpedo, where "The Kennedy Maneuver" gained fame as a successful evasion technique against the weapon; I'm convinced (based on no real evidence) that this failure led to the cancellation of the program and replacement by the Mk 54.
