Re: Japan Airshows 2020

To track the spread of the COVID-19 virus in Japan, I use: https://www.coromap.info/ To give an idea of where it is. The individual patient write-ups can be copied into Google Translate. The person running the site usually takes a day or two to transcribe the Health Ministry reports onto the map, an...

Re: Japan Airshows 2020

> The last one tends to leave on a cruise in april/may. You might want to look that up. The Carrier Air Wing isn’t likely to embark before the Iwakuni Friendship day on 5 May (just as it tended not to deploy before the Atsugi Open House on the previous weekend, before the base move). If you do a sea...

Re: Japan Airshows 2020

> The new R/W of the Okinawa-Naha Int'l AP will open on 26 Mar., 2020. Thanks for that, Uni. I am curious as to how the new western runway at Naha will be used once it opens. I assume it will primarily be used for departures, to reduce the noise level in the town. But I am interested to see if the Q...

Re: Japan Airshows 2020

Thanks for the information, Uni. 1. Following on from the 2019 thread: Do you know if any formal announcements have been made regarding the basing of the JASDF F-35B fleet? Obviously you think they will be based at Nyutabaru; was that based on any official information? In particular, do you know if ...

Re: Japan Airshows 2019

No problem, Uni.

One more (pedantic) update from back on page 1: The price for the Number 51 bus from Hamamatsu Bus (and railway) station to "Izumi 4(yon)-chome" for the JASDF museum has gone up to 330 yen.

Re: Japan Airshows 2019

I understand from conversations that were had during the Nyutabaru airshow that the extra restrictions this year were the result of the farmer’s access to the fields south of the base being restricted by poorly parked cars last year. I don’t know on what days, as the restrictions on cars this year f...

> This will be my first time to a Japanese Air Show. What time should I get to the base on the morning of the show if I want to get up close to the aircraft for runway departures without having people in front of me?

Re: Japan Airshows 2019

Looks like Hyakuri have announced the date of their show:
"Expected" (according to Google Translate) on 1st December:

https://www.mod.go.jp/asdf/hyakuri/pr.html

Further details of the show should be posted there when they are available.
