Say Military Plane Shook Windows
A low-flying US military plane (type unknown) is said to have
made such noise over Hiroshima, Japan, that seismographs registered
a 1 on the Richter scale.
The Mainichi Shimbun (Daily News) reports,
"Hiwa Municipal Government officials in northeastern Hiroshima
Prefecture said that the seismic intensity of one, the lowest in
the scale, was registered shortly after 12 noon on Oct. 24 last
The type of aircraft wasn't identified; the paper says that
military records confirm that a flight passed over the building in
question, at the stated time.
Just what action Japan's government, or lawyers, plan to take,
was not reported. The US military has no plans to abdicate its
bases in Japan, several of which have been in continuous operation
since that island empire's surrender in August of 1945.
