Also visited the Kakamigahara Aerospace Museum that is very close to the Kawasaki Aircraft
factory. Outdoors there are a US-1A Rescue Aircraft, a P2J Neptune, and helicopters.
Indoors, there is a very unusual STOL aircraft, "Asuka", that ports the jet exhaust over
the top rear of the wing to increase lift.

It was amazing that the indoor photos turned out because the only film I had left was
ASA 100 and the exposure time was like 1 second.
