Tokyo asks Washington to serve its military helicopters more thoroughly

26
The Japanese authorities turned to the United States with a "request" to take measures to prevent incidents with American military helicopters. Recall that within a few days in Japan, two emergency situations with rotary-winged machines of the United States manifested themselves at once. In particular, on the eve of the US Navy attack helicopter AH-1 Cobra made an emergency landing in the village of Yomitan, located in Okinawa Prefecture (Japan). The victims of the incident, according to the US side, no.


Earlier, a fragment of a helicopter dropped from another American helicopter to the school ground in Okinawa - a porthole, the weight of which together with the frame is almost 8 kg.

Information Agency TASS announces the appeal of the Japanese Minister of Defense, Itsunori Onodera, to the head of the US Pacific Command and the head of the Pentagon.

Tokyo asks Washington to serve its military helicopters more thoroughly


From the statement:
There is a common understanding between Japan and the United States that flight safety should be taken as the basis. We ask for thorough inspections and maintenance of aircraft to prevent such incidents. They are of great concern to the locals.


Today, Itunori Onodera is reportedly to meet with Admiral Harry Harris, who heads the US Pacific Command. The meeting will be held in the US state of Hawaii.

        It is they who are preparing the public for the fact that the F-35 will soon begin to fall.

      Well, this is a miserable semblance of what you said. Faberge is not enough to express itself in open text. Here it remains to be ingratiating that something like this is mumbled about the safety of flights and maintenance.
      In general, the Japanese have a silly wording. You might think that American pilots and technical personnel are not interested in safe flights. And is it that something will change after the request of the humiliated samurai?

    At least with a gigantic budget, even with a small one like ours, nobody can avoid problems with equipment, and if you add absurd situations to this, the same case with Indian pilots on the SU-30 MKI, who decided to go out for fresh air in the middle of the flight ... and the last tank loss by APU tankers ...

    Now the Yankees will introduce a couple of new taxes from the Japanese - to raise money for the repair and maintenance of helicopters! lol And what, they themselves complained, the Yankees nevermind that they are falling off there, this is generally a process of self-modernization lol Helicopters in action! The helicopter simply throws out the unit that it does not need! !!! wassat

    The technique is aging ... everything breaks down ... everything needs to be repaired over time.
    The laws of physics and chemistry cannot be fooled ... this problem is characteristic of all aviation in the world, including ours.
    December 31, 2017 ...
    “During a flight to the Hama airfield, a Russian Mi-24 helicopter crashed due to a technical malfunction. When making a hard landing 15 km from the destination airfield, both pilots died "

    So the article is purely politicized.

    smile And they have already worked out, don’t feed bread, but at school, give me something to dump. But seriously, I don’t know, they have an indication where military aircraft, helicopters are forbidden to fly over residential areas? If the technique began to crumble - then things are very bad.

    The Americans listened to the Japanese side and even pressed a hand to their chest in a sign of "understanding and respect," and thought to themselves: "Something narrow-eyed (the earlier appeal to the Japanese in the United States) lost their scent. It's time to straighten your brains!" That is all politics.

    Tokyo asks Washington to serve its military helicopters more thoroughly Yes, the United States, for the response, has more in stock ... asks for "more thoroughly" "even more thoroughly", "in the most thorough way." I just want to ask the Japanese, but is there any acceptance after servicing the equipment? Okay engine, but the defect of the porthole can then be determined?
