Made it over to the Convention Center area of downtown Tampa for my first time since the Redbull Flugtag to check out this crazy mock assault / Spical Ops. drill. This drill includes special operations teams from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Jordan, Norway, Poland, Thailand and United Arab Emirates. The drill was a hostage-rescue scenario and included a CV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft, Chinook helicopter, Zodiac boats, rigid hull inflatable boats, ground mobility vehicles and more.
The hostage of this event was Tampa’s own Mayor, Bob Buckhorn.
I have been to and seen a lot of events from behind my camera but I must say this one was truly one of the coolest I have been to.
