Hello all,

Earlier this year I went to Japan to explore "unchartered (to me !) territories" :smile: .
As usual, a lot of interesting sights.

Chitose : a very nice place that offer lots of good opportunities

Image

Image

not often that you see Japanese military aircraft with live weapons (here the Chitose QRA)
Image

Image

Image

Komatsu : a base that will, in the future, feature in most spotting trips I believe..

Image

Image

Image

upgraded Uh-60
Image

upgraded U-125

More to follow; thanks for looking

Marc

Great selection.

How cool do the U-125s look in Black.

Thanks for sharing.

It's really dark blue, but yeah... they look superb. Love the little bits hanging off etc. Great set of pics.
