No injuries or damage to the aircraft were reported and the landing did not disrupt commercial operations at the airport. According to the defense bureau, the U.S. military informed it on Sunday morning that the helicopter made a precautionary landing after a warning light came on during routine training. The helicopter departed from the airport at 12:25 p.m. on Sunday. The paper noted that two other Futenma-based CH-53Es made “emergency landings” at Tsushima Airport in Nagasaki on Friday.
