Glad the pilots are safe.

Glad nobody was hurt, both pilots and also fisherman and that the planes weren’t armed with nukes, chemical or biological weapons.

Why would anyone even think this? Particularly from a Japanese SDF jet?

Amazing news the pilots were safe! ASDF Search and Rescue is probably the best in the world. Thanks to them!

Actually, Japan has none of those wespons and never would.

War is never good but now war do not need weapons anymore. Just a drop can be lethal.

Feel like there is a military-related plane/helicopter accident all the time over here.

Do they get real training?

I'm glad to hear the pilots are safe and no one was hurt.

I do like how they were sure to mention that the F-2 is derived from an American design to give the usual folks the opportunity to blame the US.

What? Where do you guys get this stuff??

Not really, the news just likes to blow things out of proportion. When you train to do dangerous things, accidents will happen.

Do they get real training?

"The plane left the base with two other fighters at 8:48 a.m. for an air-to-air combat exercise, the ASDF said."

There's your training. It's better to have these things happen and learn from them during training than during the real thing, don't you think?
