Japanese military decided to check US helicopters

The Japanese Self-Defense Forces intend to conduct their own verification of American AH-1 helicopters after an emergency landing of one of these 23 vehicles in January on the territory of Okinawa Prefecture, said country's Defense Minister Itunori Onodera.

According to Onodera, the American side stated that "the flights of these helicopters were not conducted while the test was underway." However, the Japanese military does not intend to "just accept these explanations in this form," and therefore "an inspection will be carried out as soon as possible," TASS reports.

Japanese military decided to check US helicopters

It is noted that usually the Japanese military do not check the American military equipment deployed in the country.
However, incidents with the American technology in Okinawa have become a regular occurrence.

The 23 of January, the US Air Force AH-1 helicopter urgently sat on one of the southern islands of Okinawa Prefecture, which was the third incident in Japan involving American military equipment.

Earlier, an American helicopter landed urgently in Okinawa Prefecture near a local hotel.

A primary school student in the city of Ginowan in Okinawa was injured as a result of the fall of a fragment of the US military helicopter CH-53.

The Japanese Foreign Ministry made a presentation to the US ambassador due to helicopter incidents, and the country's defense ministry demanded that American helicopters be banned over the prefecture.

      Americans will not let anyone check their technique or it will be carried out by "experts who correctly understand the political moment." For during a normal check, the results will make the Japanese politely squint in surprise

    If anything, they know where to turn for really reliable helicopters. That they need to go to Rostov-on-Don.

    “As soon as possible” inspection will be carried out
    But who will let them do it? The occupier and the occupier are of different sizes, therefore their rights are different (the occupier has no rights in front of the occupiers). But the Japanese at least verbally expressed their determination, which now they will probably be proud of for a long time. Until the next fall of the American helicopter.

    The proud Japanese nation is now not ready for real attacks against the United States, they are used to creeping about it, they are trying to keep quietly about the nuclear bombing. Instead, they carefully lick their boots (and between) negative

    Is it likely that the pilot just flew "to ferret"?
