I don't know if there are days with runway repairs or something, but the first week of April will be risky. That is to say, the financial year in Japan ends in March and starts in April, and the first week is in the spring holidays. So if you visit an airbase on the first week, there is a high chance that you'll see an empty airbase.
The second or third week will be less riskier, because the new financial year will have started and planes will start flying again.
Hope it helps, phoenix

Hello Kazuo-san! Are you there? Haven't heard from you for quite a while. Best regards mario > Hi Mario-san, > Happy new year! :-) > > Last month, #912 had been re-painted with new camofurage... > http://www.f-15dj.com/imgbrd/img-box/img20041220141726.jpg > I'll try to find out new color shade.
About the news about cancelling the F2 project, I believe it is still under discussion. No one knows the result at this point. But I think all JSDF projects will be reduced in a next few years. I think the total purchase of F2s will be under 100.
By the way, I visited Nyu-tabaru airbase 10 days ago. I was lucky because I met an AGR's maintenance crew, and ... I got the color numbers of AGR's scheme!! :-) Some of them are specified using Japanese paint manufacturer's code. so I'm asking the manufacturer to get a good English document to convert the codes into standard colors. When I get it, I will make new page.
Hi Kazuo! i don't know if you remember me, i am Ernesto from Argentina, last year I asked you some questions about JSDAF and the F2 project, wich you answer me ( thanks again!). I was just chekin' your site to say "hello" but I saw here a post where it talks about F2's cutback... Can you give some information about thath? Will the project be cancelled ( nooooo!!!) or just less planes will be build? If that's the case, how many of them?
AND have you finally found some color schemes of F-15Js? I've found one of a DJ model...I can send it to you if you want:)! If you have, could you please tell me the site? THANKS!!!

Hi everyone. I'd just like to know if there is a good site about F100 engines. I'm searching myself but I can't find any. It's OK in both English or Japanese.
Help appreciated, phoenix

Hello Ron. There is nothing different about the layouts from the C-type. May I ask if there is anything that makes you think the J-type has different layouts?
Due to my poor English skill, I could not enough understand what DEP is. Sorry if I misunderstand but F-15J's cockpit layout is basically same as F-15C-21MC. I have a few photos of F-15J's cockpit. If these photos will help you, I will post it to somewhere you can access...

Thanks Javi Name: Jason Webb Date: 2004/10/15(Fri) 19:28 No.147
Some excellent websites - thanks Javi.
Still trying to find more - now have found evidence of 5 - they are 963, 832, 957, 930 & 955.
Do you or any of your contacts know where I can get hold of official Squadron patches for Japanese JASDF units? I've been collecting patches for 10+ years and still have a growing collection. Could do with help getting hold of patches.
Thanks Asif United Kingom

Hello Mark, Yes the F-2 is going to be cutback. Noone knows about the replacements for sure. But I don`t think it will be more F-15Js, they`ve already stopped making them. It may be something like the F-15E or something. Another possibility is a downgraded F/A-22 or F-35.
More F-15Js? Name: Mark Date: 2004/09/03(Fri) 10:27 No.139
I heard that that the new F-2 is going to be cutback, because of its spiraling cost is approaching that of the F-15J. So is the Japanese Air Force going to buy more F-15J Eagles instead, you think?
Also, wouldn't the Grumman F-14 Tomcat been a better choice, if Japan gone with it instead of the Eagle?
* the year 908 acted as faker for the 204 Sq with green-painted wings and tailplanes.
Could you please help me? Thankyou so much. Javi
