Marines MV-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft lands aboard Japanese ship – Washington’s PR campaign? – The Aviationist

On Jun. 14, a U.S. Marine Corps MV-22 Osprey made a landing aboard a Japanese ship near U.S. West Coast.

The Osprey landed on a Japanese heli-carrier-destroyer Hyūga, during a 18-day exercise.

Taking into the consideration the unfavourable opinion of the Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft in Japan, stemming from the crashes involving CV-22s in Florida and Morocco this is an important step forward, possibly a part of a Public Relations campaign aimed at advertising the Osprey as a safe aircraft.
