Osprey hangars to be built at SDF bases outside Okinawa - The Japan News

The government will prepare hangars for MV-22 Osprey transport aircraft at Self-Defense Forces bases nationwide from fiscal 2014, it has been learned.

The move is desgined to reduce the burden on Okinawa Prefecture by preparing facilities that will make it easier to shift some of the U.S. Marine Corps’ training flights of the aircraft, which are currently stationed in the prefecture, government sources said Tuesday.

The hangars will be set up at bases of the Ground Self-Defense Force and the Air Self-Defense Force, according to the sources.

Comment: Just one more reason why they DON'T have to build that monstrosity and fill in half of Oruwa bay near Henoko to build runways for vertical take off aircraft! I know, runways for vertical take off, "thingys," makes no sense to me either but, remember that we're talking about a government project, nuff said! Anyway, with the Ospreys spread all over Japan, now the Chinese will have to target more places in mainland Japan to drop nukes on and give the Okinawan's a break by only dropping just one bomb on island over Kadena AFB instead of two. They'll also have one less bomb to drop on DC. Yeah, I know, you can't have everything...
