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?
