First Japanese V-22 arrives at Kisarazu Air Field | DC Military

The world’s first tiltrotor aircraft, V-22 Osprey, arrived in Camp Kisarazu from Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni. This will be maintained and operated by the Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF). It was procured through foreign military sales in 2015 and will complement their humanitarian and disaster relief capabilities as well as support defense operations. Japanese V-22 is the first of the two aircraft transported from the U.S. to Iwakuni and it was carefully planned by JGSDF through training with Marine Medium Tiltrotor Training Squadron 204 and Navy Aviation Technical Training Unit at MCAS New River for four years.
