Japan Air show autumn 2016 round up - Yokota

2. YOKOTA Air Festival 17/18 September


Yokota Air Base in western Tokyo is the US Air Forces major logistic base in Japan.  The base is home to the 374th Air Wing (YJ) operating the C-130H Hercules.  Weekly operations see numerous C-17 and C-5 traffic from mainland USA as well as a variety of visiting USAF types in the region. The sprawling ramp allows for a comfortable visit despite the huge crowds.  A selection of images from the static display is posted below.
