Is arriving from Hakodate (HKD/RJCH) being located 90 miles southwest of Sapporo. The Hokkaido is the northernmost island of Japan with a lot of snow in winter. Indeed, it was very cold when this photograph was taken; however, which enabled us to take "cooler" images. This particular aircraft is now flying for Phuket Air as HS-KUO wearing the Metrojet lively. After 35 years of service (delivered October 29, 1970 for ANA), this 'Samurai' YS-11 is still going strong.
