Is taking off from runway 04 at Oshima Airport at the east coast of Oshima Island - 73 miles south of Tokyo. As not so many people outside Japan know about YS-11, it has been playing an important role for local air travel in Japan. I regret to say it might be the only and presumably the last commercial aircraft made by Japan after WWII. This is one of the last examples captured in front of the Mt. Fuji - the icon of the land of the rising sun. This aircraft is now flying for Phuket Air as HS-KVU.
