The U.S. military has told the Japanese government that the helicopter made a precautionary landing after a warning light came on. The AH-1 belongs to U.S. Marine Corps Air Station Futenma in Okinawa, according to the source.
Japan's central and local governments have expressed concern recently about the frequency of accidents involving U.S. military aircraft in Okinawa, which hosts the bulk of U.S. forces in Japan. ■
