F15 lands without canopy

An F15 fighter aircraft made an emergency landing on Kadena AB, Tuesday, after losing its canopy.

According to Kadena AB officials, the canopy fell off while the aircraft was on a practice mission at a range 130 km off Okinawa main island. No one, including the pilot, was injured in the incident.

On Wednesday, after learning of the incident, Okinawa Prefecture officials made a request to U.S. Military and the Japanese Okinawa Defense Bureau to ground all F15 aircraft on Kadena until an investigation to the case of the incident is complete.
