At the Singapore Airshow, Asia’s largest aerospace event, it is not just commercial planes that are on display but a variety of military ones too.

According to defence publisher IHS Jane’s, the Asia-Pacific is the only region to have seen military spending grow steadily since 2008.

As a result, companies such as Bell Helicopters – which makes the V-22 Osprey aircraft – is keen to tap into Asia’s growing defence market.

Currently only the US Marine Corp use the V-22, but the company is keen to attract new customers in the region.

The BBC’s Puneet Pal Singh got on-board the aircraft to get first-hand experience of its capabilities.
