Futenma helicopter relocation debate

Politics stirring the Futenma helicopter relocation debate -

Kadena town residents are more adamant than ever they do not want Futenma’s helicopters in their backyard.

The Japanese government, while standing fast with talk of the longterm Henoko relocation airport for Futenma’s military aircraft and helicopters, is talking more strongly about shifting the 50 rotary wing aircraft to Kadena. The government knows there’s opposition to the new airport in Nago, if it is to be built. They know too the Okinawa Prefecture demands that any occupancy of a new airport by Americans be limited to 15 years.
