Things happen. Latching mechanisms corrode or become weak. The pressure during flight and the g-forces can make the canopy pop-out. Lucky and the pilot is skillful enough to make it back to the ground.

YuriOtani: Lester cannot be returned until the Middle School and some Family Housing units in Lester are relocated to Foster.

You also have to remember that the Okinawa Government likes to move the JMSDF aircrafts from Naha. Guess where they will relocate to if the Marines leave Futenma.

There is an alternative that nobody want to consider. How about making Kadena Air Base a "Joint Base" moving the Futenma Air Station functions to Kadena. It will cost much less than reclamation in Camp Schwab.

They did not identify where the part was recovered. There was an article a few days ago that an aircraft part was recovered somewhere in Chiba. Is this in relation to that incident?

Yubaru, if the Okinawa government is really concerned on the welfare of the dugong, I suggest they tag it so they can document its grazing grounds and range of its habitat. Has anyone seen the dugong lately?

If the dugong is so important, why don't they tag them so they can track their locations. Has there ben any sightings for the last few years?

Posted in: Gov't ordered by court to curb SDF night flights, pay damages over noise at Atsugi base See in context

The US Navy does not fly F-18's in Atsugi. They follow the flight restrictions and does not conduct flight operations at certain hours. The noise must be from JMSDF flight operations.

It is all about money. People are currently paid by the government for being in the noise designated impacted areas. They have to complain to get more money.

Posted in: Gov't ordered by court to curb SDF night flights, pay damages over noise at Atsugi base See in context

Atsugi is the home base for the Japan Maritime Self Defense Forces (JMSDF) and not an Air Self Defense Forces base. JMSDF operates patrol aircraft like P-3's and search and rescue aircrafts. It is also the host for the US Naval Air Facility Atsugi.

Posted in: U.S. military to return some Okinawa land to Japan See in context

BertieWooser, serviceman, their dependents and civilians working for the military do shop off base.

Does the land still get returned to Okinawans if the Okinawans don't agree to give up land for the reclamation project moving Futenma to Henoko? NO. The agreement is the functions have to be relocated to a place where the functions can be performed.

There are some "lands" that the US wants to return but the "owners" do not want it back. They need the rent.

In_Japan; do you think the Okinawa Homeowners Association would be happy and take tourist if the military and civilian workers leave Okinawa?

Badsey3; Tokyo and Washington originally agreed to return Futenma in 1996. So, with the way Okinawa politics go, 2022 any be achievable. If you look back, Naha Port relocation was agreed upon more than thirty years ago and environmental survey is just starting.
