An antenna-like part weighing 1.4 kg fell from a F-15 fighter jet stationed at the U.S. Air Force’s Kadena Air Base in Okinawa during a flight in late February, a Japanese government source said Tuesday.

The U.S. military did not notify Japanese officials until Monday about the incident, which occurred on the morning of Feb. 27, the source said. It is not known where the part fell in Okinawa.
