Kisarazu JGSDF Open House.

Kisarazu is home to the various types of the JGSDF 1st Helicopter Brigade. Last Sunday was the open house.

Show starts with an impressive mass formation flyby.

Role demo of the various types.

In a rather unfriendly gesture this AH-1 proceeded to strafe the crowd with its nose gun !

Ch-47 demo flights.

The black "1" with lighting flash on the tail show that these belong to 103 Hikotai

Image

the white Owl is the emblem of 104 Hikotai.

Visitors depart.

Despite being in immaculate condition this old fella doesn’t get out much these days.

thanks all

very nice to see something different, and I am sorry not more people will give you a comment.... usual story though I'm afraid.
Any more to share, I know a few of us would certainly welcome them.
cheers.

My thanks for posting a great set which I agree certainly merit more comment.

A few of those at Fairford in July would be welcome additions! :shock:

Nice capture on number 5, Leonard.

:clap:

On the subject of lack of comments. I think most photographers can see the high use of shutter speeds on most of the rotor shots. Up to 1/640th is being used. The result is the frozen blade look which, IMHO, detracts from the subject of rotary photography. You can see the difference on number 5 where the shutter speed has been lowered to 1/320th which is a bit more pleasing to the eye.
