143rd leg: Sunday, September 11, 2005
RJTT to RJSF, Tokyo to Fukushima, Japan
Airport: Fukushima
1.5 hours

This is the plane I'm going to go with, until I can pick up my old plane in Alaska. Fukushima wasn't very far away but I spent some time sight-seeing again. 




There was a thunderstorm off to the north and I finally caught some lightning in a screenshot.


Saw another airliner today.



It was raining at Fukushima. 


 144th leg: Monday, September 12, 2005
RJSF to RJSO, Fukushima to Ominato, Japan
Airport: Ominato Aero
2.2 hours

Lots of pine trees around Fukushima.




This plane is similar to mine but it's still different. At one point I realized I was falling out of the sky from going too slow.And my landings haven't been so great either. 

145th leg: Tuesday, September 13, 2005
RJSO to RJCC, Ominato to Sapporo, Japan
Airport: New Chitose
1.1 hours

A close up of my leased plane.


I thought that might be the city of Sapporo over there in the distance, but no, it's supposed to be north of the airport.

New Chitose airport and just plain old Chitose airport over on the left (I think). My plane is a little speck on the taxiway in the middle.


I enjoy hanging out at the airports and watching the other planes.
