Japanese Minister of Defense Satoshi Morimoto and his entourage board a V-22 Osprey to fly to Patuxent Naval Air Station from the Pentagon last Friday. The tilt-rotor aircraft have been deployed to Japan but despite a good safety record in recent years, they will remain grounded there until the Pentagon can explain why two of them recently crashed.
