NAF Atsugi 12th Sept

Postby Kenny on Wed 12 Sep 2012, 12:17 pm

Thanks to work sending me to Tokyo for 5 days, I thought it'd be rude not to visit the local attractions. It took an hour to get there by train from Yokohama and when I got off the train, I had a 20 minute walk in searing heat and 71% humidity. I was ridiculously hot. I had some lovely help from certain members of this board and found my spot. I saw a P-3 arrive and I knew I was in the right place. I saw a JMSDF SH-60 doing circuits and settled in. Then it went quiet and I saw my fellow snappers leave. Thankfully, (or not), the final one said "Change direction." Dammit!! So I walked 24 minutes back to the train station and got another train to the north end. Another walk and I was in my spot. A YS-11 was doing circuits and that made me stay.

Hope you don't mind the amount :smile:

Hi Kenny,

Good to see you made is to Atsugi! Must indeed have been a tough walk... :sweat:
Love the YS-11 shot (9043) and the last once is also a very nice with the sun setting behind the P-3. Well done!

Rgds, Hans
