  • 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.
  • The newest MV-22 Osprey containerized flight training device is complete and operational at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.
  • U.S. Marine Corps pilots and crew of an MV-22B Osprey with Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 262 (HMM-262), perform post-flight procedures after landing on Marine Corps Air Station Futenma (MCAS Futenma), August 12, 2013. The aircraft will be based at and operate out of MCAS Futenma, and will be replacing the CH-46 helicopter. The MV-22B combines the capability of a helicopter with the speed and range of a fixed wing aircraft. Basing the Osprey in Okinawa will significantly strengthen the United States' ability to provide for the defense of Japan, perform humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations and fulfill other alliance roles.
