Osprey MV22 over Aysgarth Falls

Post by flatfoot471 » Sun Oct 17, 2021 2:55 pm

Can anybody provide serials for two Ospreys which flew over Aysgarth Falls, in Yorkshire about 1425 on Wednesday 13th October and then later flew West to East along the River Ure valley.

Many thanks in advance

David

Thanks

Have never seen one of these in the flesh. Is it possible for these to fly Connigsby to North Yorkshire in 30 mins?

25/30 minutes sounds about right for that distance, they don't hang about!

A distance of around 120 miles, so approx 250 mph then yes. Osprey has a cruising speed of around 300mph.
