A Marine Corps helicopter flying out of Camp Pendleton made a safe precautionary landing Wednesday afternoon at Ramona Airport after a control-panel warning light came on aboard the aircraft.
The AH-1W Super Cobra touched down at the airfield on Montecito Road shortly after 1 p.m., according to military and civilian officials.
There were no injuries, fire or structural damage, said 1st Lt. Matthew Gregory, a spokesman for the Miramar-based 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing, where the twin-engine attack helicopter is stationed.
Two Marines — a pilot and a gunner — were aboard the aircraft at the time of the emergency, Gregory said.
