A group of Japan Air Self-Defense Force, or JASDF, personnel from 401 Hikotai (Squadron) at Komaki AB stand with their Australian counterparts from 37 Squadron and their C-130H aircraft on the flightline at RAAF Richmond during a goodwill visit to the base near Syndey on 17 March. Base officials noted that the visit marked the first time a JASDF C-130 crew had visited Australia. Japan and Australia both have a commitment to providing humanitarian assistance and disaster relief both domestically and during international crises in the Asia-Pacific region.
