USS San Antonio (LPD 17), at sea (June 5, 2006) -- A CH-46 Sea Knight completes a landing near a V-22 Osprey on the amphibious transport dock USS San Antonio (LPD 17).  The ship is conducting several tests using the tilt-rotor V-22 Osprey and the CH-46 Sea Knight helicopter to determine what these aircraft are capable of doing with the Navy's newest class of amphibious transport dock ships.  U.S. Navy photo by Journalist Seaman Recruit Jeff Hall.
