Category: [ News ]

A U.S. Marine Corps helicopter stationed on MCAS Futenma made an emergency landing on a field in Yomitan Village Monday afternoon.

No injuries or damage to property has been reported in the incident, according to Okinawa Prefectural Police.

The AH-1 aircraft in attack helicopter made the emergency landing only two days after a UH-1 chopper from Futenma made an emergency landing on a beach on Ikei Island in Uruma City on Saturday.

That helicopter was removed from the emergency landing site and transported to White Beach naval facility Monday morning.
