We were able to see the Self Defense Force training planes arriving and departing. It was awesome!
The noise, the speed, the clean flight line. It was my first time to see it. I was so excited.
Many people had checked the site in advance and came to see it.
I think it’s worth a detour to see it. If you don’t like the sound of explosions, get your earplugs ready.
