Kawagoe is near Iruma Aribase, and yesterday, I can shot airplanes.
First is a JASDF (Japan Air Self-Defense Force – Kōkū Jieitai) Kawasaki T-4, an advanced training plane, like the Alpha Jet. Young fighter pilots learn how to flight in a fighter with this aircraft.
This plane is used by the japanese acrobatic team, the Blue Impulse.
This is my first JASDF aircraft photo !
The second one is poor quality because i was not ready when I see the plane, and it was far away. I recognized the shape of a Lockheed C-130 Hercules, and I thought it was one of JASDF.
Back to home, when I look at the photo, I was surprised by the recognizables colors. It was a US Coast Guard HC-130 !
