All national dailies except Nikkei reported that a Futenma-based aircraft made a precautionary landing at Kumejima Airport in Okinawa on Wednesday afternoon due to a problem with its electrical system, noting that no damage or injuries were reported. The Marine helicopter, which had taken part in a drill at a nearby outcrop before the landing, reportedly returned to MCAS Futenma about three hours later. Since the unscheduled landing disrupted commercial flights, the U.S. military reportedly apologized for “causing inconvenience.”
