Thanks for this. Do you have planned participation for any of the other events in October/November?
These include: Tsuiki, Gifu and Hyakuri on 25 October (which to choose?), Ozuki on 7 November and Hammamatsu on 8 November.
Are there likely to be rehearsals on the day before each or any of these?

There is also the Naval review in Sagami Bay on 18th October, and for that I know they expect SH-60J/K, MCH-101 Merlin, US-1 or US-2, and P-1 from the JMSDF and P-8 and V-22 from the US. This may be a bit far offshore for viewing, but perhaps Atsugi will be active that Sunday.

On the same day is Akeno, the JGSDF helicopter base.

Cheers,
CS
