Nyutabaru Air Show - Display_ctd

Article Index

FenceIn the afternoon 3 Phantoms (4 were planned…) also showed an airfield attack demonstration, presenting different attack profiles, which were very interesting to watch. Then there was also a rescue demo by the UH-60 helicopter and the T-125 that was ok, but after some circles of the aircraft and the helicopter a bit boring to photograph.
A mostly welcomed visitor was also the blue Mitsubishi F-2A that flew in directly from Tsuiki for the display and disappeared directly afterwards again.

The parachutists were a real surprise as there were being dropped out of the special coloured C-1 that we saw earlier in the static display. So we also got nice photos of this aircraft, and of course the Blue Impulse with their T-4 were performing at the end of the show. The display is not really spectacular compared to other teams, but it was a pleasure to finally see them on such a beautiful day turning around my head.

Blue Impulse - JASDF Aerial Demonstration Team

When the show was over most people were already on the way to their car, but we decided to stay a little bit longer and see if there were still some departures (on a Sunday afternoon!). Fortunately our expectations were not disappointed, though the runway direction has been changed in the time between, and some of the highlights of the static display were still photographed in the air.

Airshow Departures

097 ---- 098 ---- 099 ---- 100
101 ---- 102 ---- 103 ---- 104

FahrtWhen the last aircraft had left we were quite exhausted and could not believe that after such a cold night it was nearly possible to stand around in T-Shirt during the day. With the setting sun it became however cold again and we got in the car to start the drive towards Kagoshima, where we wanted to be the next day.

tbc in the Japan trip report!
