Asahi and Yomiuri wrote that the Ministry of Defense announced on Wednesday that the accident rate of the MV-22 Osprey at the end of September this year was 3.27 per 100,000 flight hours. Asahi wrote although the GOJ has explained that the accident rate of the Osprey is the same or lower than that of other aircraft operated by the U.S. Marine Corps, its explanation has lost one of its justifications because the accident rate for all Marine aircraft was 2.72.
