Maj. John P. Arnold (left) teaches Toshihiko Matsumoto how the controls of an MV-22B Osprey tiltrotor aircraft work in a flight simulator Jan. 28 during a visit by Japan defense officials to Marine Corps Air Station Futenma. The simulator allowed the visiting officials to see the importance of the aircraft and the level of training the pilots undergo. Matsumoto is the deputy director general with the Okinawa Defense Bureau, and Arnold is the current operations officer with Marine Aircraft Group 36, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, III Marine Expeditionary Force.
