As of 8:40 a.m. March 10, Kadena Air Base has resumed flights of F-15 fighters. The base had stopped flying the aircraft because it made an emergency landing with its windshield having fallen off on March 4.

Three F-15 fighters took off at 8:40 a.m., and then another three followed at 8:48 a.m. One more aircraft left the base at 9:05 a.m.

Five days after the accident, the base announced it had completed carrying out safety checks on all F-15 fighters assigned to the base as well as additional preventative measures to resume flying the aircraft.

The military has not released any information about what caused the accident and how they carried out the preventative measures.
