Japan trip nov 2019, day 6. Ozuki,Hofu & Iwakuni pics

I got up at 5 in the morning for the 300 km trip to Ozuki. No police or camera's this time (I think) and the journey went smooth. I arrived at Ozuki around 8, the JMSDF training school is based here. After some strange navigating for the overview spot I was happy to see a lot of T-5's on the ramp. I...

Japan trip nov 2019, day 3. Iwakuni pics

While in Akeno I found out that the next day would be a holiday in Japan so no JASDF flying activities :-(. This news was a bit of a dissapointment…. The only option for the next day would be to drive to Iwakuni for the USN based aircraft there. It turned out to be a good day! I under estimated the ...

Very nice pictures!!!

Since you asked for feedback, for my personal taste I like the colors but they are a little bit "soft".
Ok, thanks for the feedback, I tried to shop them a little bit "harder" but the background got too much hard white. Any tips?

last post Japan trip nov 2019 Gifu Airshow log and 1 KIX pic

It has been a few years since I posted pics but I want to try to pick it up again :-).
