A Lockheed Martin F-35A of the Japan Air Self-Defense Force (JASDF), operated by 302nd Tactical Fighter Squadron, suffered a warning on the electric system, on the way back to Misawa Air Base (MSJ/RJSM). The Lightning II made an emergency landing on Aomori Airport (AOJ/RJSA) at 15:38 LT, and the accompanied one followed at 15:40 LT. The cause of the warning was malfunction of system control unit.
