During the operation to withdraw US troops from Somalia, problems arose with the engine of the MV-22 Osprey tiltrotor

25

During the operation to withdraw the American military from Somalia, in which several ships of the US Navy took part, it became known about the failure of one of the MV-22 Osprey tiltrotors. Including with the help of tiltrotors, the American military was transferred both to warships and to the US military base in the state of Djibouti.


According to recent reports, technical problems arose in one of the MV-22 Osprey, which is part of the wing of the Wasp-class USS Makin Island amphibious assault ship. Reported technical problems with the tiltrotor engine.

At the same time, information is announced about the presence of a hangar on board the UDC USS Makin Island, in which it is possible to carry out repair work without a ship entering the port. Repair of an aircraft engine is included in the list of possible works that are carried out on board the landing craft of this class.



The photo shows the repair work. Information is provided that the repair is carried out by the servicemen of the 164th tiltrotor squadron of the United States Marine Corps (ILC).



In the presented frames, you can see that three American servicemen of the technical link of the ILC of the Makin Island ship (two - "below", one - "above") are engaged in the repair work of the engine dismantled from the tiltrotor.


In the United States, after the publication of these photographs, they asked themselves whether there is an engineering team on the warship that monitors both the progress of repairs of such complex equipment and the results of such repairs?

      In theory, there should be Rolls-Royce T406 (AE 1107C-Liberty), but somehow they are not very similar

    Seriously, do we need to think / worry / discuss about this ???
    And then we have few problems of our own.

      After all, you need to somehow kick the damned Americans, which is not a reason to be proud of the missiles falling out of the TPK at the start.

        We have OWN problems ... they have their own and no less.
        To drown, run into, blame for all the troubles, someone / someone ... just not your beloved, STUPID, NOT RATIONAL, WAY TO ANYWHERE!
        We've seen this more than once. Without critical reflection on YOUR PROBLEMS, it means missing / not fixing old ones and FRUITING NEW!

    I wonder if an article appeared in the us media about how our tank crews themselves change the engines on tanks in the field in winter? belay This is a common routine work that the computer will not do, change the Yankee engine, and their convertible will fly further. ...

    asked the question, is there an engineering team on the warship that monitors both the progress of work on the repair of such complex equipment, and the results of such repairs?


    In any provincial separate squadron, even in a detachment. What a question ? Engines on a ship or in a part are not repaired, they are changed. By wear, by damage, by resource development.
    Won TV3-117. Three changed, the rest just take pictures for a group.

      People who are far from aviation terminology systematically call the elimination of a defect "repair". In this case, the engine could be removed to eliminate the defect and replaced with a reserve one, so as not to knock the board out of operation.

    One device broke, and the conversations on the whole site VO. And to hell with him, even though everything will fall apart, the striped ones are still riveted, their printing press works around the clock, they have something to pay.

    - Dear VO editors, if there is an opportunity to reassure the US public through your channels that UDC Makin Island has the appropriate technical staff of engineering qualifications, everything will be fine with them ... hi

    That says it all.
    The work was done, the device was returned to service. That's why there are great specialists in any army in the world. The VUS repairman himself, although not an aviation one. I think that everyone who had to carry out urgent repairs literally "on the go" will understand me.

    If tomorrow they have a wheel on a truck which will go down or the diesel engine will run up, write. Without this, we can’t live a day. winked

      It was high. The first 10 years of their operation.
      Now it is equal to the helicopter.

      The price for versatility is as follows .. I saw in the video how Osprey twisted a barrel .. an interesting sight .. but about the article - everyone breaks .. and the resource of the engines does not last forever ..

    Aircraft engines are repaired at the manufacturer's plant.
    The photo shows the replacement of the engine, the performers do not need high qualifications if performed under the supervision of an engineer.

    Osprey is old by today's standards but still in use. The question of the competence of the technical composition and replacement of units. Something must be wrong in their kingdom.
    The car is complex and requires a good attitude and service.
    And based on the recent years of renovations, optimizations, a violation of maintenance techniques is possible in the United States.
