Early May 2018 4Aviation undertook yet another Japan tour. This time, we combined the large Tokyo area (including Komatsu and Nagoya that is) with a visit to the Friendship day at MCAS Iwakuni.
The operational life of the F-4 Phantom is coming to an end in 2020 with the Japanese Air Self Defence Force. Because of this we centred this short tour around the famous Hyakuri airbase to enjoy this beautiful aircraft while it is still in full operational swing. We scheduled this base twice this week to be sure to get the best results.
The United States Marines Corps scheduled a Friendship Day at MCAS Iwakuni so we offered this as an addition to the original tour. It was a great week
