New Mexico Air Force National Guard personnel take off in a V-22 Osprey after an hour stopover at the New Mexico Military Institute parade field Saturday afternoon. “This is an opportunity for people to see what the Air Force has and to talk with our crew, our flight engineers, our maintainers,” says Maj. Skypeck, who asked that his first name not be used. Skypeck attended NMMI in 2001 as a U.S. Air Force Academy preparatory student. The Osprey is part of the 150th Special Operations of the New Mexico Air National Guard stationed at Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque. Skypeck said he had arranged the visit with NMMI personnel but that it was coincidental that the day chosen was when a regional drill meet was occurring at the Institute. (Lisa Dunlap Photo)
