Butler, following a seminar on the Osprey and its capabilities. The group of influential military personnel and businessmen were invited to attend the briefing and learned about the workings of the aircraft along with being provided an opportunity to fly an Osprey in a simulator. “We value our alliance with Japan very much and that’s why we want to get the true word out on these aircraft,” said U.S. Marine Maj. Joshua T. Fraser, an operations officer with Marine Aircraft Group 36, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, III Marine Expeditionary Force. The Marines are with MAG-36, 1st MAW, III MEF.
