Japan 1998 - Day 7
... of a full week's airliner spotting in the 'land of the falling Yen' !

Arrive at Narita | Down to Nagoya | Osaka-Itami | Osaka-Kansai | Osaka-Kansai then Tokyo-Haneda
Tokyo-Haneda | Tokyo-Haneda & Tokyo-Narita | Depart Narita

Sunday 5th April - Tokyo-Haneda then Tokyo-Narita

Up at the same time for the morning at Haneda. In the four hours we spent on the roof, we logged just one airliner that we hadn't seen the previous day, and that was quite special. On our arrival, there were already lots of Japanese enthusiasts there, very early on a Sunday morning; we soon realised why. At 0745 'NH101A' was the first arrival of the day, All Nippon's first A.321 JA101A on delivery from Bangkok !!.

It's worth checking out the airline stores on the 1st floor of the terminal, one operated by JAL, ANA and JAS. While they mainly stock more normal items, they do have a small selection of items of more interest to the enthusiast. We were looking for plastic models of some of the JAS MD.90 special schemes, but there were none, although they did do nice JAS MD.90 mugs.

At 1100 we left for Narita, taking the Limousine bus which cost Y3,000. Journey time was 1 hour in good traffic conditions, and we took up position again on the south observation deck of terminal 2. Again we missed some traffic off terminal 1, but good sunny-side-up photos were a compensation.

We stayed at the Narita View hotel again, and rewarded ourselves with a meal in the Chinese Restaurant, which came to about Y8,000.

There was little variation in the based airliners noted today, I only got 2 new, the ANA A321 and the Citation !.

I managed 4 new during the afternoon at Narita. We failed to see the JASDF 747-400 though, which we thought would be landing during the afternoon from Heathrow.
