Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

I was at:
34°09'35.8"N 132°14'51.4"E
I arrived around 12 o’clock on a Friday, stayed until 16.00 hours.
Not the busiest day, this friday. But seeing flying US-2 and EP-3 , OP-3 and UP-3 was good.

Your facing the sun for quite some time, because of the location of the runway at the sea.
So I decided to do some tourist things in the morning and go to Iwakuni in the afternoon, when the sun is more to the right and later back of you.
