Date Posted: 2001-10-23

An employee at a cattle raising center in Ada, Kunigami Village, found an American MH47 military helicopter making an emergency landing on the centerís pasture, Thursday night. The helicopter reportedly is an Army aircraft stationed in South Korea.

According to Nago Police, the landing site is 300 meters north of the centerís office building. No one was injured in the incident.

One of the crew reportedly told that the helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing because of an oil leak after departing from the Kadena Air Base. Five mechanics arrived to repair the aircraft Friday, and it departed in the afternoon.

Local officials handed the Naha Defense Facility Administration Bureau a letter protesting the incident and demanded that military officials operating helicopters in the area be extra cautious.
