Lance Cpl. James Koch, a Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 265 avionics technician, looks on as a MV-22 Osprey rotates its rotor blades at the Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni tarmac here July 25, 2012, as an HMM-265 aircrew performs routine maintenance and functional checks. This marks the first MV-22 Osprey aircraft deployment to Japan and a milestone in the Marine Corps' process of replacing CH-46E helicopters with the MV-22 Osprey, a highly-capable, tiltrotor aircraft which combines the vertical capability of a helicopter with the speed and range of a fixed-wing aircraft.
