Defense Department to Buy 19 V-22 Ospreys

The Navy has made a decision to use the V-22 Osprey as the new vehicle to take people and equipment to aircraft carriers. Congressman Mac Thornberry spoke to KGNC.
 
"The good news here is this is a new mission for the V-22, it means we're going to build more of them, and we've seen that in the president's budget requests that that decision has been made," Thornberry said.
 
The Defense Department's 2016 budget includes $1.6 billion for 19 V-22's. Thornberry says other countries are also looking to buy.
 
"As more of this tilt-rotor technology gets used and people watch it, there become more and more uses for it here at home and around the world and obviously that's good for jobs here in Amarillo," Thornberry said.
 
Bell Helicopter is under contract this year to deliver about 25 V-22's.
