Sapporo Okadama Airport, Hokkaido Prefecture, Japan – A posted sign helps spectators understand the capabilities of the MV-22 Osprey in front of a static display during the Sapporo Air Show at Sapporo Okadama Airport, July 20. More than 50,000 spectators viewed U.S. and Japan military and commercial aircraft that were either on static display or showcased flying over the airport. “It is a great opportunity, not only for the United States military, but also for the Japan military to showcase their aircraft. We want to show the Japanese public what we do and why our alliance is so important,” said Maj. Gen. Andrew W. O’Donnell Jr., the deputy commander of United States Forces, Japan. This is the first time the Osprey has flown to Sapporo. The pilots and crew of the Osprey are with Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 262 (Reinforced), 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, III Marine Expeditionary Force. (U.S. Marine Photo by Cpl.
