Japan’s GSDF jet disappears from radar
    2017-May-16  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A GROUND Self-Defense Force (GSDF) aircraft is feared to have crashed on Japan’s northernmost main island of Hokkaido while heading to an airport to pick up an emergency patient from a hospital, Defense Ministry officials said yesterday.

Ground control lost contact with the LR-2 reconnaissance aircraft, carrying four male crew members, at around 11:45 a.m. as it was flying in poor weather conditions near Uzura dam in the town of Assabu, about 30 kilometers west of Hakodate Airport where the plane was supposed to land, the officials said.

The twin-propeller plane took off from Okadama airport in Sapporo, also on Hokkaido, at about 11:25 a.m.

It was planning to pick up a patient hospitalized in Hakodate following a request from the Hokkaido prefectural government and return to Okadama.

A pilot, backup pilot and two mechanics were aboard the plane, which belongs to an aviation unit for northern areas.

The Self-Defense Forces and local police were searching areas including mountains straddling the town of Assabu and the adjacent city of Hokuto.
