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. HMM-262 is part of Marine Aircraft Group 36, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, III Marine Expeditionary Force. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Lance Cpl. Caleb Hoover/Released)
