Re: JMSDF unit formation dates?

Re: Russia combat aircraft production

Awesome info. I note the numbers in each Su-34 batch seem to differ. How many were in batches 1 to 6?

Either down the road past the go cart track by the zero g airbus where you can see them side on or from the restaurant at the top of the departures terminal but they will be nose on here until they taxi

From the photos the hind c/ns look like 3534623912936 for 46 and 3534623912942 for 47. 47 is further away in the photo so the c/n is much harder to read. Pretty sure it ends 942 but the preceding 4 digits may not be correct.

Eric/Marco many thanks for the info. You are right the C-17 was 30602 not 30603. A typo in my online report! Yes 100% sure about C-17 01. This was already in when we arrived about 12.30 and hadn't moved by the time we left at 19.00. As you look at the base from the hill it was on the far left. I ass...
