These four photos were sent to me of different US Airlines being diverted to Yokota Air Base which were bound for Narita in Tokyo Japan. The airbase took 11 inbound flights and over 500 passengers. Col. Otto Feather, commander of the 374th Airlift Wing at the base, told NextGov.com that the, “entire Yokota community — including the Red Cross and the Boy Scouts — turned out to care for the stranded passengers from United and Delta airlines, among others.” Check out a video of the air base helping all their short-term guests.
According to the Wall Street Journal, all All Nippon Airways (ANA) and Japan Airlines (JAL) flights are canceled at least through Saturday.
I am in the process of trying to find out who took these photos to give proper credit.
