2 Japanese F-35 fighter jets make emergency landings after one has a mechanical problem

TOKYO (AP) — Two Japanese F-35A stealth fighter jets made an emergency landing at a commercial airport in northern Japan on Monday, but there were no injuries or damage, officials said.

The fighter jets were on a training flight from Misawa Air Base and landed safely at nearby Aomori Airport after one developed an unspecified mechanical problem and requested a landing emergency, airport officials said.

The Japan Air Self-Defense Force declined to provide details, including the cause of the emergency landing.

The airport said its runway was closed for about 20 minutes due to the emergency landing before operations returned to normal.

The incident is the latest in a series of problems with flight training provided by the Japanese military.

In April, two Japanese Navy SH-60K Seahawk helicopters crashed in the Pacific south of Tokyo after colliding during a nighttime anti-submarine warfare training exercise, killing a member of the Navy. crew and leaving seven others missing.

Last month, a C-2 transport plane carrying eight people made an emergency landing at a commercial airport in central Japan after a cockpit window opened during a training flight. No damage or injuries were reported.
