A “security incident” caused a gate closure early Friday at Kadena Air Base on Okinawa.
The incident happened at 5:26 a.m. at Gate 1, according to a statement from the 18th Wing.
“Emergency services responded along with local authorities,” the statement said. “More information will be released when it becomes available.”
A message posted later on Kadena’s official Twitter account said the gate had “resumed normal operations.”
Kadena – the largest Air Force base in the Far East – hosts more than 20,000 U.S. servicemembers, family members and Japanese employees.
