On October 10, F-2 fighter jet parts fell from the sky over parts of Fukuoka Prefecture. The SDF aircraft lost its 90-kilogram canopy and emergency ladder shortly after taking off from the Tsuiki Air Base. A unit has been dispatched to search for the parts in the mountain area of the eastern area of Asakura City. Source: NHK / Mainichi
