The USMC performed a demonstration of their Marine Air-Ground Task Force (MAGTF) at Corona Park.

V-22 rotorwash knocked the NYPD's fence down.

I saw a video preview of this on CNN on my Frontier flight earlier, but we got to the gate and they turned off the IFE before they showed the whole story. Something about a Memorial Day scare in Queens when the Osprey blew over a lot of stuff.

Great shot but couldnt they find a field without dirt? Oh I forgot its NYC!! :lol:
Seriously though those big rotors kicking up a brownout is dangerous also.
Hell next year they should bring in a CH-53!!! That'll show them!!
