Japanese F-15s land in Philippines for first time since WWII

Two Japanese fighter jets landed in the Philippines on Tuesday for the first time since World War II, as part of a cooperation between Japan's Air Self-Defense Force and the Philippine Air Force.

The two F-15 s arrived at Clark Air Base, where around 60 ASDF members have been taking part in exchanges from Nov. 27 to Dec. 11 in a bid to promote mutual understanding and defense cooperation between the forces of the two countries, according to the ASDF.

A squadron commanding officer of the ASDF, Lt. Col. Shotaro Arisawa, said at a ceremony held at the base in Mabalacat, north of Manila, the main island of Luzon, a milestone in the history of defense exchanges between Japan and the Philippines.
