A Marine Corps helicopter flying out of Camp Pendleton made a safe precautionary landing yesterday at a rural Southern California airport after the aircraft control-panel warning light came on.

Shortly after 1 p.m., the AH-1W Super Cobra landed at the Ramona airfield on Montecito Road, as reported by cbs8. 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.
