    Brig. Gen. Steven R. Rudder interacts with reporters following the arrival of two MV-22B Osprey at Marine Corps Air Station Futenma Aug. 3. The two aircraft, part of the second Osprey squadron to Japan, flew from MCAS Iwakuni. The arrival of the second Osprey squadron will complete the one-for-one replacement of the older CH-46E Sea Knight helicopters on Okinawa. The Osprey can fly twice as fast, carry three times the payload, and fly four times the distance of the older CH-46E. Its capabilities significantly benefit the U.S.-Japan alliance and strengthen III Marine Expeditionary Force’s ability to provide for the defense of Japan and perform humanitarian assistance and disaster response missions. Rudder is the commanding general of 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, III MEF. The aircraft are part of Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 262, Marine Aircraft Group 36, 1st MAW.
