 The Hiroshima Prefectural Western Residents Society (Representative Moyuru Shibata), which opposes the expansion and buildup of the U.S. Marine Corps Iwakuni Base, filed on June 17 with the Chugoku-Shikoku Defense Bureau in Hiroshima City a request calling for the cancellation of low-altitude flights by U.S. military airplanes. The request is addressed to the Defense Minister and the Director-General of the Chugoku-Shikoku Defense Bureau.


 In the request, residents complain that they “suffer from dreadful airplane noise and live in constant fear of crashes,” calling for the cancellation of transferring carrier-based planes from the Atsugi base to the Iwakuni base. (Abridged)
