Matsushima AB

One of the smaller bases in Japan, but “Home of The Blue Impulse”.
Besides the usual “Rescue Wing” aircraft, a UH-60J and a UC-125A, this base also houses some F-2s for training and some T-4s that are used for the Japanese Demo team ‘The Blue Impulse’.

The team was founded in 1960 as a team of six F-86 Sabers.
They switched to the Mitsubishi T-2 in 1980 and then to the Kawasaki T-4 in 1995.

Fortunately, there was a high sand mountain, which meant that we could also see inside the base, because it is surrounded by a wall covered with black foil.
