MANILA, Republic of the Philippines

U.S. Marines guide a Filipino woman off an MV-22B Osprey and toward the terminal at Villamor Air Base Nov. 12. Typhoon Haiyan, the strongest typhoon recorded to make landfall has displaced hundreds of thousands in the Philippine Islands. The Osprey provides a unique capability in this type of operation due to its vertical takeoff and landing capabilities and its ability to convert quickly to fixed wing configuration, giving it increased speed and range. U.S Marines of the 3d Marine Expeditionary Brigade are here supporting Armed Forces of the Philippines efforts in offering relief to the people in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan.
