                      Blue Impulse, JASDF.
                      Ashiya AB, Fukuoka Prefecture.

                      Cancelled demo flight, during air show with 40,000 audience.

                      Capsized rubber boat appeared on sea near air base.
                      Fire Department, JCG, and Prefecture Police boats, divers, and helicopters searched for rubber boat occupant(s).

                      Air base decided SAR had priority, and cancelled demo flight in afternoon.

                      The truth was in the morning, a man in his 70s, was fishing on the rubber boat.
                      10:30, it capsized, and he fell into the sea.
                      He wore life vest, and another fisher on another boat rescued him.
                      He went home by motorcycle.

                      Before noon, people saw and reported the empty rubber boat.

                            All this discussion about which DMU. I want to know why they don't put together a modernized F-2A order redesigned for the new engine. You know, the engine that's more powerful than F110. It needs to get behind the development with a high-low mix to make it worthwhile. They aren't just facing J-20 in the future, the J-10 and J-11 will be in theater for decades to come.
