Mysterious Japanese Airfield

Fri Aug 31, 2007 6:42 am

Have I got one for you this time. Question, which Japanese airfield is this? Seen flying over Honshu, north to south, to Narita. Answers on a postcard to the usual address.

It will be very interesting to know whether anyone knows. If anyone can recommend a URL for airway charts as well, it would be appreciated.

My instinct was to say Hiroshima, but on inspection (thanks Database!) I was wrong

You mean you can't narrow down your location any further than to say you were over a 400 mile stretch of Honshu island?

I'd assume you, G-CIVP, flew from wither Sendai (SDJ) or Sapporo (CTS) to NRT and are descending into NRT.
Then as TeamAmerica has posted, its Hyakuri, the home of two squadrons of F-15s and one squadron of RF-4E of JASDF (Air Force).

Makes perfect sense - particularly given that any self respecting Air Force base has a nice golf course.

Er, that's why I posted the thread topic!

Carpethead - thanks for the reply. Basically, the flight from London to Narita routed over Siberia, then made a 'right turn' near Khabarovsk towards Japan. If I recall correctly, the flight doesn't insect the Japanese mainland as north as Sapporo, so presumably it over Sendai.

Thanks for all the replies, appreciated.

My point was, if you had at least told us where you were coming FROM, or how far into the flight you were it would have narrowed things down a bit.
