Is making an initial 180 degree turn shortly after taking off from Osaka Itami to Kochi (KCZ) as ANK405. The airport where we departed is visible on the top. LOOK down there! GUESS what is the shape of the islands in the lake? YES! That is Japan!! Indeed, we ARE flying over Japan. (Of course, the islands were artificially made.) Funny, isn't it? This aircraft continued to serve for Air Nippon until the end of 1995, and now preserved in Kakamigahara Aerospace Museum, Gifu, Japan in ANK color.

I flew a YS-11 that belonged to Piedmont and this captures that feeling beautifully. Absolutely love it. Great shot.
