Yamagata Airport, which has been accepting temporary flights since the Great East Japan Earthquake occurred

Instead of Sendai Airport, which became unavailable due to the tsunami of the Great East Japan Earthquake, airports in neighboring prefectures played a major role.
One of them was Yamagata Airport in Higashine City, Yamagata Prefecture, which was used as a base for police, fire and U.S. forces in place of Sendai Airport.Temporary airliner operations, etc., which took the place of transportation, including the Tohoku Shinkansen, which had become inoperable, were carried out.

J Air, a member of the Japan Airlines Group, has been working on securing a means of transportation for people by flying extra flights to Tohoku immediately after the Great East Japan Earthquake.
At the same time, McDonnell Douglas MD-90-30, which had withdrawn from Yamagata Airport in preparation for retirement, was re-launched as a temporary flight until the end of April.

The Aircraft Registration JA55AN of Boeing 737-800 operated by All Nippon Airways was accompanied by a logo on the upper part of the aircraft, and was accompanied by a message wishing the reconstruction of the stricken area.

I am grateful to those who support the reconstruction of the Tohoku Pacific side, such as Miyagi Prefecture.
However, I also must remember that there were airport officials on the Sea of Japan side and airlines that operated the services that supported this activity.
