For a number of reasons it has taken me a while to get around to posting these images and although other forums have featured the special schemes from the Hyakuri open house last December I thought I would put my contribution on BM. I travelled to Japan courtesy of http://www.centreofaviationphotography.com/home and in addition to Hyakuri we visited the Tsuiki open house (images to come) and spent a day at Iruma. As you can see by the images the weather was changeable. The VIP and families day before the public show was warm with glorious sunshine and blue skies while unfortunately the show day itself was cold and cloudy. This was the last show for 302 Squadron which disbands in March and it has been announced that 501 Squadron with the RF4Es will disband in a year's time. If you plan to go then my suggestion is be there early not least because they close the roads around the base. We had booked a coach which gave us a degree of preferential treatment and left the hotel at 4.30am. Some people looked like they had been camping out overnight to be the first in the queue. Bag searches are mandatory and no step ladders or collapsible stools are allowed (unlike at Tsuiki where the stools were allowed). We spent the Saturday VIP day at the towers along with what must have been 100 other enthusiasts and the Sunday inside at the show. 1. 2. 301 Squadron 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. The photo ship 10.
