This past needs to be remembered in order to prevent a repeat in the future. Look at the pictures and hear the stories as this can be repeated in any city in the world.

Clear weather during the day, it should be an easy approach and landing. It should of been an easy VFR landing yet it looks like the pilot made a nOOb mistake.

pangas, these US Navy squadrons fly F-18E Super Hornets into Atsugi and they are based on the USS George Washington. Strike Fighter Squadron 27 Royal Maces, Strike Fighter Squadron 102 The Diamondbacks, Strike Fighter Squadron 115 Eagles, Strike Fighter Squadron 195 Dambusters. NAS Atsugi is the home of aircraft for the carrier based in Japan. Electronic Attack Squadron 141 Shadowhawks has EA-6B Prowler and EA-18G Growler aircraft. Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron 115 Liberty Bells with E-2C Hawkeye 2000 aircraft. So there are a lot of US Navy F-18 Aircraft at NAS Atsugi and these aircraft are LOUD! Fyi there is nothing to prevent night landing practice at Atsugi. The US Navy now has late night and early morning takeoffs and landings. U.S. military planes account for the majority of the noise at the Atsugi base.

The US Military is outside of Japanese Jurisdiction and do what they please. The American bases might as well be located in America. If the USA wants to fly F-18 fighters into Asugi, Futenma, Yokota, etc at 3 am there is nothing Japan can do but protest. If courts order fines it is the Japanese government that pays them. I remember a American General calling the Governor of Okinawa "a wimp". So there is nothing the government of Japan can do short of canceling the defense treaty.

Must be another "fobs" test and it will soar over the south pole, South America and then over Texas. It is an old concept developed by the Soviet Union.

The US military ignores all Japanese court rulings. Before long there will be night practice again, the premise to save the US money. From the US "it is only for 14 days and the locals must sacrifice for the American good".

Ticket Prices have increased not decreased and retiring the 747 fleet did not help. Put it this way the 747 carried 400 people or so but the 787 carries about 200. That is two flight crews and two ground crews. Fuel prices are much lower but the extra personal cancels any savings. So there are fewer coach seats and thus premium prices are being charged. True the 777 is still in service but for how much longer? I think ticket prices will rise again.

ebisen I live in America and they are American women. They do not know about Pearl Harbor or the ship that was named after their state. The Americans no longer teach it in their schools. I still wonder if it is worth the expense of trying to get positive ID. I also wonder why now? More it will be very difficult due to the condition of the bodies. It will soon be 74 years and they were in the water a long time before the ship was turned upright and then put in dry dock.

Roger it is not Japans war. Let the Americans do it with their large military. Japan needs to follow the road of peace.

Nothing prevents Japan from being ready, it is just that Japan can not make the first attack. As for the drills if not against article #9 are on the line.

I have maid service once a week and the young ladies never heard of Pearl Harbor. I have a 1/200 scale model of the USS Arizona and they were clueless. As for why it has not been done before, well it is the government. They take forever even to do simple things. I hope they are able to ID all of them but it has been 74 years. Not all people have descendants and so many of them were so young.

Still the PI requested assistance and this is how they repay Japan.
YuriOtaniJul. 29, 2015 - 07:11AM JST
Japan needs to mind its own business and do not hold drills with other countries outside of Japan. The only exception is self defense drills within Japan with America.

The new civilian airliners are extremely quiet. Street noise is much more disturbing, especially those small motorcycles. As for pollution the latest generation is a real improvement.
