@TrevorPeace We love our Japanese apples up here in Aomori. They cost extra because they taste better!

@GW, the flight path was over the lake, not the ocean. The pilots swift actions (not mistake) most certainly prevented loss of property and possible lives on the ground, plus he saved the aircraft. F16s are single engine aircraft and when the engine fails there is no back up. The main product the fishermen harvest from Lake Ogawara are brine clams (Shijimi). The USAF and local authorities painstakingly cleaned up the spill. My family eats clams from the lake every year, and this year the clams were especially delicious.
