A U.S. Military F15 fighter jet crashed in waters off Japan’s southern island of Okinawa, where the bulk of U.S. Forces in Japan are based, during a routine training mission today.

The pilot, the only person in the aircraft, ejected successfully and was rescued, sustaining “non-life threatening” injuries, Japanese defense minister Itsunori Onodera told reporters in Tokyo.

Many residents of Okinawa associate the U.S. Military bases with crime, accidents and pollution and want them moved off the island. A series of emergency landings and parts falling from U.S. Military aircraft have highlighted safety concerns.
