Report: US Military Looks to Resume Mid-air Refueling Training in Japan

The U.S. military looks to resume mid-air refueling training exercises in Japan in January after drills were suspended due to a crash landing in early December, NHK reported Thursday.

U.S. told Japan that it would restart refueling training after a re-education of pilots, confirmation of training procedures and flight simulation exercises, the report stated.

A V-22 Osprey tilt-rotor aircraft made an emergency landing off the coast of Okinawa, Japan on December 13.

Japan’s government asked the U.S. military to submit information on safety measures to prevent the occurrence of similar accidents before the aerial refueling demonstrations resume, NHK said.
