Japan IV 2019
In order to visit the Hyakuri air show 4Aviation sent two groups to Japan for a week. This is the report of the tour that started with the air show.
On Friday 29 November the second 4Aviation group travelling to Japan during the 2019 air show at Hyakuri gathered at Schiphol for the start of their tour. KLM took the group directly to Narita.
After arriving at Narita (Saturday 30 November) other group members joined, completing the group of 16. As soon as the rental vans were ready the group headed for Hyakuri. The “invitees only” show was on today and, if traffic was to cooperate, some of that was still within reach for the group. Traffic was actually cooperating and after arriving at Hyakuri the group found a spot near the civil terminal to enjoy the final elements of the air displays.
After this was completed it was time to find the hotel for the night. Both groups were staying in the same hotel in Tsukuba and some mingling took place in the evening. Not that there was much time to do so, since departure on Sunday was scheduled at 04.30 local time.
