CAMP FOSTER, Japan -- Three MV-22B Osprey aircraft with Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 265, Marine Aircraft Group 36, 1st Marine Aircraft Wing, III Marine Expeditionary Force, based out of Okinawa, Japan, arrived in Puerto Princesa, Palawan on Jan. 22 to conduct bilateral training with elements of the Philippine Air Force.

“The flights we are conducting are important for our pilots and crews to maintain proficiency. The routes here provide a great venue for low-altitude training” said Maj. Joshua T. Fraser, operations officer for VMM-265.

The low-altitude flight training will take place on routes approved by the Government of the Philippines that have been used previously in flight training exercises. Philippine Air Force personnel will accompany the U.S. Marine contingent and provide ground control and other interoperability training.

"The Marines are flying by the same rules and regulations the Philippine Air Force abides by and utilizing similar routes to ones flown by our aircraft” said Tech. Sgt. Edwin Agang, operations chief for 570th Composite Tactical Wing, Philippine Air Force.

The U.S. Marines and Philippine Air Force personnel will also share expertise on humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations during classes and discussions on the ground. Marines will also give a presentation on the capabilities of the MV-22 Osprey to the Philippine Air Force and both countries' service members will participate in a cargo loading exercise on the aircraft. 

"We appreciate the Marines coming here to train with us and are glad to host and support them at our base” said Agang.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
    put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely
    off topic but I had to tell someone!

    I almost never leave comments, but i did a few searching and wound up here Marine Corps Installations Pacific >News Center >News Article Display.

    And I do have a couple of questions for you
    if you tend not to mind. Could it be only me or does
    it look like a few of the responses look like left by
    brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at other online sites, I would
    like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post.
    Would you make a list of the complete urls
    of all your communal sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    An added benefit to getting wooden beds is that their appearances is
    often changed. Of course there is the possibility that these types of diapers could have been introduced because they're more cost effective for the
    manufacturers to produce,they're more breathable and
    therefore presumably more comfortable to wear,and they're theoretically healthier for the
    individual's skin,or it could be for all these reasons.
    So for a 7-foot table you need a room of 17 feet by 10 foot 6 inches.

    But make sure that the coffee you get is 100% pure.
    You will want to read the article on my posted on my website to learn a
    bit more about how to purchase these beans. It only has 20mg of caffeine each
    dosage which is definitely considerably much less when compared to regular mug which has
    100mg of caffeine.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in
    your content seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.

    I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser
    compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.

    The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon.
