Marines Land in Hoffman Estates - May 13, 2009
Promoting the United States Marine Corp's Marine Week, we've been seeing all kinds of low-flying military choppers in the area. As part of their public awareness campaign today, they landed a MV-22 Osprey at the Sears complex in Hoffman Estates where the locals had a chance to look at equipment, weapons and take a walk through the aircraft as well as some other armored vehicles they had there.

For the locals, they'll be at Dundee/Crown High School on Friday from 8:30 to 11:30 hopefully with the MV-22 or the OH-53 Sea Stallion!
