Katsuhiko Tokunaga

Katsuhiko Tokunaga began his aerial photography career in a T-33A jet trainer. Since then, he has covered the high-performance military jets of twenty-six nations, concentrating on air-to-air photography. In addition, he has taken official pictures for foreign aircraft manufacturers, air forces, and navies. He has also worked on the production and direction of many aviation videos. His published work appears in magazines in Japan and in other countries. Based in Tokyo, he has accumulated over 800 flight hours in high-performance jets, among them the F-16. He has also flown with and photographed USAF Thunderbirds, Japanese Blue Impulses, USN Blue Angels, Canadian Snowbirds, British Royal Air Force Red Arrows, French Patrouille de France, Italian Frecce Tricolori, Swiss Patrouille Suisse, Portuguese Asas de Portugal, Spanish Patrulla Aguila, Swedish Team 60s, Yugoslavian Letece Zvesdes, Slovak Biele Albatrosys, and Swiss PC-7 Team.
On a recent photo shoot at Misawa, Japan, Tokunaga wanted to photograph an F-16C loaded with air-to-air munitions. But the only chase aircraft available to him was an F-16D loaded with two AGM-88 HARMs, two AIM-120s, two AIM-9Ms, an ALQ-167 electronic countermeasure pod, and two drop tanks. Heavier than the C model subject, the photo chase F-16D had a significantly higher drag index as well.
“Reassurances from the pilot did not allay my fears about an unsuccessful shoot. But that flight was one of the most enjoyable photo sessions in my life. The powerful F110 engine, a fine-tuned flight control system, and skillful pilots combined to put those two F-16s in perfect formation throughout the entire flight. Those flights show only a very small part of the total capability of the F-16. However, it was enough to impress this aerial photographer.”
