The Okinawa Prefectural Government on Thursday asked the U.S. forces in the prefecture to halt F-15 flights until a probe is completed into a crash Wednesday in which an F-15 crashed into the sea during a training mission off the main island of Okinawa.

In a written request to the U.S. military and the U.S. Consulate General in Okinawa, the prefecture asked that F-15s be grounded until the investigation into the cause of the accident is completed.
