Helicopter crash sparks concerns over safety

Date Posted: 1999-05-01

The crash of a U.S. Marines helicopter last week that claimed three lives and left another crewmember missing has seen a rise in protests by local politicians and residents, according to report in the Okinawa Times.

In its Saturday issue, the Times said the helicopter crashed during night flight training 400 meters off Ufuzaki, Kunigami Village, and has since resulted in local residents feeling uneasy about future training exercises. One man said he was concerned about his children's safety at a nearby school, the Times added.

Two local mayors said they might reevaluate the existing policy of cooperation between their municipalities and the central government.
