ok this should put all doubt away, after searching through all the photo's that i could find i think i found the correct name of the the air base. so
i googled earth it and there is a link for for twicpic's after tsunami there.
started here, the only site that showed a good picture of the fighter, from (REUTERS/Kyodo) that i could find.
you will have to scroll down, it's the forth one, to see the fighter.
in the caption you see this.
"Higashimatsushima, Iwate Prefecture in northern Japan," i could not get this to come up on google earth
so i googled " higashimatsushima"
in the caption there saw this
"Created in the merger of Yamoto and Naruse and immediately southwest of Ishinomaki, this area is home to the Japanese Self Defense Force’s
Matsushima air base, which is famous for its aerial stunt team."
so then i took ishinomaki, iwate prefecture in goole earth and it came up.
below is a screen shot of google earth on desktop. i circled sendai airport and the little blue button.
you will will see that this is north east of sendai.
now if you scoll down on the little blue button you will see the air base come into view, but wait it get better.
there is also a link for " after tsunami " with address, which i graciously included here.
when you open the web page up you see this.
it appears they might be up in the tower, but if you look in the back ground you will see the fighters, in the middle of all that water.
now you can follow my little journey, or take my word for it.
oh and if you don't believe that this is the right one, if you scroll down to the fifteenth picture on the first link,you will see two men looking at
before and after of the air base, that look just like it in google earth.
nuff said there is no fakery here no move on.
