Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 265 aircrew performs routine maintenance and functional checks on MV-22 Osprey on the flightline at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni here July 25, 2012. 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, tilt-rotor aircraft which combines the vertical capability of a helicopter with the speed and range of a fixed-wing aircraft.
