Trump gets accused of being sexist, racist, no political experience, stuck on himself, loudmouth. So someone suggests Winfrey run for president? Hilarious!

PTownsend and other protected people,
The US does have an official language. It's called English. Shame on Spirit Airlines? People have a right to be concerned.

People, visit Okinawa at least once and see if the people are "suffering" or being "sacrificed". The last time a base referendum was held only 40 percent of eligible voters bothered to vote.

ReformedBasher, I'm afraid you will not find too many aviation specialists on this site as most of the people that post comments on Japan Today (like the above) are probably middle school students. However, the US-2s are quite similar to the old PBYs used for maritime SAR, recon, bombing missions, etc. Although a two-engine aircraft, it was a very versatile aircraft. It is still flying today as a water bomber.

The helicopters are CH-46s, not -47s. The Ospreys are much quieter than the choppers. Also, there have been planes at Yokota for many years so aircraft noise will not be new to local residents. Do your homework, people.
