YOKOSUKA NAVAL BASE, Japan — Sailors with metal detectors spent all day Tuesday searching for two machine-gun bullets still at large in Yokohama after a box of 200 bullets fell Monday from a helicopter on its way from Atsugi Naval Air Facility to the USS Kitty Hawk.
“They’re going to look until they find them,” said Brian Naranjo, Atsugi spokesman. “For as long as it takes, until it’s all accounted for.”
