Japan and the United States are considering temporarily stationing the MV-22 Osprey, a transport aircraft that can take off and land vertically, at U.S. bases and other locations in Honshu, sources said Wednesday.

The proposed move, with some planes to be stationed as early as July, comes ahead of the plan to deploy the Osprey at U.S. Marine Corps Air Station Futenma in Okinawa in October, and is aimed at easing the prefecture’s concerns about the aircraft’s safety, the sources said.
