PACIFIC OCEAN (April 19, 2021) Sailors assigned to the embarked Medical Treatment Facility's Air Department aboard the Military Sealift Command hospital ship USNS Mercy (T-AH 19) marshal an MV-22B Osprey assigned to Air Test and Evaluation (HX) Squadron 21 of Naval Air Station (NAS) Patuxent River, Md., on the ship's flight deck. Mercy is underway off the coast of Southern California completing a Dynamic Interface exercise, where the ship's aviation facilities will be evaluated for compatibility with the V-22 Osprey and MH-60 Sea Hawk, and establish launch and recovery windows in adverse weather conditions. Mercy recently returned to its homeport in San Diego from a regular overhaul in Portland, Ore., where improvements were made to its flight deck to support multiple aircraft platforms. Mercy must be in a five-day-activation status in order to support missions over the horizon, and be ready, reliable and resilient to support mission commanders.
