Former H-46 Driver
AF CV-22 folks seem to be busy getting DLQ's on Navy platforms...It seems the Air Force guy I was talking to probably didn't know better. I asked about it just last week and he told be they had already bought it (Baylander). Given the modifications that were required to make Baylander able to land an Osprey, it makes sense that it is probably a different vessel. If what I heard was correct, even with the deck capable of physically landing a V-22, the certification process to make it legally able to count as a DLQ platform is still a long way from finished.
