Japan Airshow dates 2008

Post by biesenbeek »

Hiya all,

in the process of planning a little trip to Asia for 2008 I searched the internet for Japanese airshows for 2008, with little or no result. Can anyone provide me with dates/fields pls ?

TIA

The Ministry of Defence Japan will release the official schedules by the end of March. Wait for a moment!

Sometimes you can find some schedules faster than the official site at the AIRock's site or the local city hall's site. (Japanese only)

*AIRock : One of the aerobatic performance team in Japan.

I got a private message asked what the Military Review at Hyakuri is.

Well, please see the "Airshow report" section, "Hyakuri 2005".
It will be almost same attendance this year.(Sure, no F-1/T-1/T-2/T-3s)
