Navy surges aging C-2 Greyhound fleet amid V-22 Osprey grounding

Recommended Posts

The Navy’s small, C-2 Greyhound fleet is picking up additional air time and surging to support aircraft carriers in the Pacific, as all V-22 Ospreys remain grounded following a fatal Air Force crash in Japan last year.

The Navy’s CMV-22 Osprey, tapped to replace the aging C-2 Greyhound to fulfill the carrier onboard delivery mission to ferry personnel, mail and priority cargo from land to an aircraft carrier’s deck, were grounded following a November crash that killed nine airmen.
