MV-22 squadron arrives at MCAS Iwakuni



MV-22 squadron arrives at MCAS Iwakuni


US Marine Corps, July 30, 2013 - MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP S.D. BUTLER, Japan -- Marines with Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 262 off-loaded 12 MV-22 Osprey tiltrotor aircraft at the port facility at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, Japan, July 30.

The aircraft arrived by commercial cargo ship before being flown to Marine Corps Air Station Futenma in Okinawa, Japan, as part of HMM-262. The 12 aircraft will be inspected, and prepared for flight operations to Okinawa at the beginning of August completing the one-to-one CH-46E replacement on Okinawa.

The MV-22 is a highly-capable aircraft with an excellent operational safety record. The aircraft combines the vertical capability of a helicopter with the speed and range of a fixed-wing aircraft that can fly twice as fast, carry three times as much, and fly four times the distance of the older CH-46E.

Its capabilities will significantly benefit the U.S.-Japan alliance, and strengthen our ability to provide for the defense of Japan and to perform humanitarian assistance and disaster relief missions.
