Tsuiki Airshow - Mitsubishi F-2

Article Index

188 006The rest of the morning was dominated by the F-2s, doing a solo display routine with two aircraft, nicely presenting their aircraft to the crowd, and furthermore two other F-2s flying several ground attack patterns, which is the intended role of this jet as a maritime strike platform. Unfortunately the sky has at this time already been dark grey, voiding the nice effect of the two-tone camouflage scheme completely out.

188 001A long lunch break gave enough time to photograph the static display and stroll through the food and merchandising area – which was an expensive trip for me this time, with all the souvenirs that could be bought… Furthermore there was a traditional Japanese music band performing in one of the aircraft hangars and it was also possible to have a close look at the special painted F-2A (53-8535), celebrating the 50th anniversary of 6 Hikotai. For this occasion the tail has been painted in F-1 and F-86 camouflage with several other spots around the airframe commemorating the different aircraft that the squadron flew in its history.
