Saturday’s Asahi wrote that an Osprey aircraft belonging to the U.S. military’s Yokota Air Base made a precautionary landing at the MSDF’s Tateyama Air Base in Chiba Prefecture at around 9:00 p.m. on Dec. 1. No personal or property damage has been reported. The paper wrote that Yokota-based Ospreys also made precautionary landings at domestic airports in June and September. The Tokyo Metropolitan Government and the governments of six municipalities around the Yokota AB requested the base and the Defense Ministry to investigate the causes of the landings, prevent a recurrence, and swiftly provide information about the incidents by saying it is very regrettable that precautionary landings have occurred three times in the past six months.
