    Hehe.. My first thought exactely. What the h-ll is a Major and a Lieutenant General doing in an F-2?? Good thing the guy is the base comander cuz I bet that crash was pretty expensive.

    And of course nice to hear that neither of them got seriousely wounded.

    ] He's not going to become a combat pilot.

    For comparison, some months ago, ISTR the ROKAF CIC, or some such REMF, flew over the Dok Do Island (that South Korea claims ownership, while Japan claims jurisdiction), but I forgot whether he flew his fighter himself, or was a GIB (Guy In Back = passenger)?

    Also, ISTR the JASDF has retirement ages that depend on the pilots' ranks? Maybe up to 55?
    For example, a JMSDF Lieutenant Commander (54) recently flew his last flight on an U-36A, on 11 June 2009.
    http://www.yomiuri.co.jp/e-japan/yam...OYT8T00131.htm
    He has 7,437 flight hours, after 36 years.

    Thus, Maehara (49) is probably still eligible to learn the F-2?

    ] Why is a 49 year old Lieutenant General & base commander trying to qualify on a new type?

    Technicality: the translation site mistranslated the rank. Maehara's a Major General.

    There's a difference between old enough to keep flying, & young enough to make it worthwhile qualifying on a new front-line fighter type. I can't think of any military reason for it.

    Looks like wasteful self-indulgence to me, a senior officer qualifying for his own pleasure.

    F-15J. 02-8801, #801.
    JASDF, based at Gifu AB, Gifu Prefecture.
    Rescue exercise: fighter simulated hydraulics trouble that disabled brakes, and emergency landed with tail hook.
    On runway, width 45 m metal wire stopped fighter landing at 270 km/h, after 300 m.
    30 SDF soliders in nine ambulances and fire trucks extinguished simulated fuel leak, and rescued pilot.

    "ASDF F-2 fighter jet swerves off runway at Misawa"

    Wednesday 24th June, 07:00 AM JST

    The accident occurred at around 4:15 p.m. after an F-2 of the 3rd Air Wing based at Misawa landed on the runway amid strong crosswinds, it said. The injured pilot was identified as Maj Mikio Kobayashi. Maj Gen Hiroaki Maehara, commander of the air wing, was the other pilot aboard and was undergoing a training flight at the time, according to the ASDF. It was not immediately clear which pilot was landing the aircraft.

    (There was a rumour that once upon a time, a JASDF fighter crashed into the Sea of Japan, its pilot bailed out, and was picked up by a Soviet ship, but was taken to Russia. AFAIK, here's the truth that's out there.)

    27 May 1970:
    F-86F-40. 12-7997, #997.
    302nd Hikoutai, 2nd Koukuudan, JASDF, based at Chitose AB, Hokkaidou.
    Above Pacific Ocean, near Aomori, Iwate, and Miyagi Prefectures, altitude 8,000 metres, returning to base, engine flamed out. Unlike F-104, glided, but could not clear problem. Chose to bail out, flew towards ship on surface, and ejected.

    Captain Matsubayashi Seigo.

    Covered by waves, body entangled by parachute, and could not climb into life boat. One hand held life boat, began to lose conscious because cold, and big cutter appeared between waves.
    Rescued by Soviet ship Torumenia [Ptomainia? Tomainia?], from Yokohama to Nakhodka. Passengers were tourists visited international exposition at Oosaka. Matsubayashi got warm drink, towel, and bath or shower.
    Recovered by JCG ship Abukuma.

    Grew up in Hokkaidou. 1962, graduated at Sapporo Nishi [Sapporo West].
    Baited by aircraft maniac classmate, applied ballot for experience ride at Chitose AB, and was not drawn. More unhappy for not drawn by ballot, than for not experience ride, and wrote letter directly to 2nd Koukuudan commander. Commander offered ride in C-46.
    1972, as instructor, assigned "tactic research group" [Blue Impulse], 1st Hikoutai, 1st Koukuudan, JASDF, at Hamamatsu.
    Fourth of flight of four F-86F. For formation flight, wings overlap one metre.
    Or, altitude 70 metres, flew inverted, then 90 degrees climb.
    After "sayonara flights" all over country before F-86 retired, converted to F-4, and assigned Chitose AB.

    After retired, became car insurance investigator, and lived in Eniwa City, Hokkaidou.
    On 12 November 2005, suddenly died with myocardial blockage.

    http://mainichi.jp/area/aomori/news/...40028000c.html

    2009.10.23:
    JASDF announced accident report. Cause was pilot's [Major General Maehara] inexperience with aircraft.

    During landing, affected by cross wind from left, pilot shifted aircraft to left, to maintain straight heading.
    Pilot depressed brake pedal in incorrect direction, tires side-slipped, and aircraft ran off left side of runway.
    He has long experience in F-15, but this was his third flight in F-2.

    Instructor pilot's [Major Kobayashi] left wrist lightly wounded.

    If above 0.29 mm, can use, but special regular inspections. Dropped exterior panel is 0.30 mm, minimum tolerance.

    2009.12.07:
    JASDF announced cause was probably human error. F-15 did not extend landing gear when landing.
    Pilot probably forgot to extend landing gear, and extended landing gear after F-15 touched down. He thought he extended landing gear.

    JASDF analysed digital flight data recorder. Warning alarm and lamp when landing gear not extended, activated normally for above 30 seconds before landing, but pilot probably did not pay attention to them.
    F-15 landed and spinned on almost empty centre drop tank.

    Pilot's total flight time was 3,600 hours. 2,700 hours in F-15.

    On ground, another pilot had duty to confirm landing gear extended. He saw landing gear not extended, but did not timely warn pilot by radio.
    JASDF ATC also did not remember any warning.

    "Crashed MSDF chopper located on seabed; 1 body found"

    Wednesday 09th December, 04:00 PM JST

    TOKYO - A Maritime Self-Defense Force vessel Wednesday located an MSDF patrol helicopter that crash-landed the previous day in waters off the city of Nagasaki, leaving two of its three crew members missing.

    (The comments under this article are serious, while some Japanese Netters still blame (North Korean) operatives for all their very recent accidents and sabotages, such as the 20-odd JGSDF soldiers who were taken to hospital for poisoning after their instructor told them to taste explosive; or that the unfortunate crew of this unfortunate helo are operatives, so operatives are everywhere.)

    JMSDF accident report.
    During sonar training, helicopter climbed to 91 m, and auto-hovered. While auto-hovering, trainee pilot by mistake, manually decreased output power, and helicopter gradually descended.
    While descending, auto-pilot attempted to maintained pre-set altitude, and increased output power, to near the limit value. Trainee pilot noted sudden increase in output power, and announced he would manually decrease output power.
    He manually decreased output power, and helicopter quickly descended. Instructor heard altitude alarm, took over flight control, increased output power, but helicopter crashed onto surface.
    Instructor pilot ordered to activate float of fuselage, but trainee pilot did not activate. Fuselage began to sink.
    Instructor pilot ordered evacuation, but trainee pilot and mechanic did not evacuate in time, and killed.

    Accident cause was instructor pilot was not completely aware of hovering condition of helicopter and trainee pilot, of trainee pilot's inappropriate operation, and did not immediately correct and instruct. Helicopter became "vortex ring state" and crashed.
    Flight handbook will add "vortex ring state" danger to warn pilots.
