Aircraft 209, the fourth MV-22 to be assigned to the Presidential Support Squadron awaits attachment of the tail empennage (painted the iconic dark green of the squadron) on the Bell V-22 assembly plant production floor in Amarillo, Texas, Dec. 1.

The first MV-22 is on schedule to be delivered to Marine Helicopter Squadron One (HMX-1), the Marine squadron that provides executive level logistics and passenger support to the president, in early 2013. The MV-22s will replace the CH-46Es currently operating with the squadron.

Did Candidate Obama fly in a V22 in Afghanistan during the 2008 campaign?

I believe that POTUS was not allowed to fly in HMX's CH-46s. I certainly hope that rule holds for the Osprey.
