Spanish LHD Juan Carlos I Prepares for Trident Juncture

The Spanish LHD Juan Carlos I is certifying her flight deck to operate the V-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft for the forthcoming international joint-combined exercise Trident Juncture in October and November.

These aircraft come from the US Marine Corps VMM-261 detachment currently deployed in the Spanish Morón Air Base as part of the Special Purpose MAGTF-Crisis Response Africa.

The Osprey conducted 15 landings on the LHD’s flight deck as well as a hot refueling operation. The Spanish flight personnel took the opportunity to familiarize with this aircraft: landing and tie down procedures, refueling and taxiing.
