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.

Fun in Japan. Kadena.

Post by Motty »

G'day All,

Well, I've finally finished processing all my shots from my Japan trip a couple of months ago and I hoped you might like to see some of the results.

Firstly, and most importantly, a huge thank you to Jake Melampy for inviting me along and to everyone at Kadena and Misawa that did so much to make it such a great experience.

The first base we visited was the USAF base at Kadena. This is, without doubt, the biggest base I have ever seen. What an experience! Lots of stuff I never thought I would get to see up close.

And, last but not least, Captain Kodak (Jake) getting airborne for his sortie to get some stunning air to air shots.

Very nice variety in USAF's Sushi country! Things like the RC-135S in the background give a special touch to the series...

Many thanks for your kind comments guys.

I realise that the borders aren't everyone's cup of tea but it's something I've decided to do for the photos I share online.

Cheers,
Motty.
