The United States resumed the transfer of Osprey convertible planes to Okinawa

32

On Monday, the United States sent a new batch of convertible planes to the Japanese island of Okinawa: eight MV-22 Osprey flying machines left Iwakuni airbase (Yamaguchi prefecture) and headed towards the new base.


The relocation of another group of American convertiplanes to the Futemma airbase (Okinawa Prefecture) was scheduled for the middle of last week. However, the US military command was forced to postpone it because of the incident with the military helicopter HH-60, which 5 August crashed at the Camp Hansen base in the central part of Okinawa, ITAR-TASS reports.

As a result of the crash, no one was injured, but the incident caused great concern among the Japanese government and the local population. Washington was even launched an official protest over the incident.

At the end of July, two Osprey converters were already transferred from their own Iwakuni airbase to a new permanent location at the Futenma airbase in Okinawa.

On Okinawa, most of the American military facilities in Japan are located, including the largest Kadena air force base outside the US. In recent years, the American military presence has been increasing discontent among the population of the island, mainly in connection with the transfer of Osprey convertoplanes here. The authorities of Okinawa insist on their withdrawal from the local air bases because of doubts about the safety of these machines.

Osprey is an aircraft equipped with two engines that can rotate 98 degrees. This gives the convertiplane the ability to take off and land like a helicopter and fly like a plane by translating its two screw engines into a horizontal plane.

        And we are not the same as before. And the Germans. And the French and the British. Everything has changed.

        But the fact is that Okinawa is still Japanese.
        2 Fact - Japan is again strong at sea and is becoming stronger.
        3 fact - nothing shines on the sea with Japan or the States of China.

                I don’t understand where we benefited from the non-sale of C-300 to Iran. The Americans bred Bear as a boy. Russia has received NOTHING from this.

                Are we winning? Give at least a couple of examples, shook. And then besides Snowden I do not see victories.
                In Syria, Assad managed it himself. If the Americans wanted to bomb it, they would bomb it.
                The Chinese just got islands and almost free oil for nothing.
                Even Ukrainians continue to send us on all issues.

            American troops are in many places - have these territories become American? There is such a concept of "sovereignty". In Okinawa, it is Japanese. Until 1972, it was American.

                        If my opinion is different from yours, then this does not mean that it is not true. You are trying to reverse the generally accepted and generally accepted facts and concepts. For example, in a recent post you claimed that Georgia was not preparing for war on 08.08.08/XNUMX/XNUMX, and Russia, in your opinion, was the aggressor. You ascribe sovereignty and other things no less epic properties wassat

                        Which, in fact, means that Georgia was not preparing to attack Russian peacekeepers, as well as plans and intelligence, since 2006, etc. years, about our positions, they collected just like that. Armed with offensive types of equipment, too, just like that. They were trained by NATO officers, too, probably so, for a look. You can continue this list for a long time, but is it necessary, if everything is clear already? sad

        Need a photo? You are welcome. Photo from my last service. Mother drunk, mocking her young child. Like these freaks? This is purely ours, Russian. Native, so to speak.

        Question to the old-timers of the site: how to reset the received warnings?

      I see no reason to have fun. I am not a fan of Germany, but she is economically strong again and people live better there. I personally know Russians who have already left there or are going to. And I can make photos of freaks in Russia too.


      I came to Russia, to my homeland, from the EU. Changed EU citizenship to Russian citizenship. Let me know how cool it is and how happy everyone is there wink

        Tired of washing dishes in the overseas Magdak? Or carry boxes? Losers arrive who failed to fit in and, in order to hide this, shout about their love for the Motherland. But I never went further than Ukraine, although the opportunity was called, and I serve the country not in words, but in deeds.

    In general, I am a candidate of economic sciences and do not associate myself with the McDuck and others in no way at all. Yes, and I do not eat there wassat

    I came to Russia because it is my homeland. Here people are different and the atmosphere is different, and therefore you can use your observations, based not on personal experience, in famous places. Hanging stamps on people is an indicator of a distant mind. wassat

    It is seen. Very visible. The only question is which country do you serve? Russia, subtly accusing her of aggression 08.08.08? Ukraine, which rushes into the wall in full sail, thanks to "amateurs"? Or the Western bloc, whose adherents, by the way, operate with the same data as you do. fellow

    And about how I ended up there - the standard story of an officer's family, which was on the western borders of our great Motherland. So no cococo hi

      "Um" from your posts rushing a maximum of 15 years. And once again I ask where I accused Russia of unleashing 08.08.08? Subject and quote.

        I thought you did not answer my answer because you have nothing to say. You will find everything in another branch. Scroll through the comments a little higher. wink

          I answered you above. I have never written that Russia is an aggressor.

            So you don’t know how to express your thoughts in such a way that they are clear and understandable to everyone, and not just to you and a group of like-minded people. It seems that you are living on some planet. wassat
