Nice variation of helicopter types.
I was here between 8.00-9.45 before heading for Kumamoto and the Rugby World Cup game.
While at Tosu station around 10.30 a 'mass flight' came over:
3 AH-1's
1 UH-1 & 2 OH-6's
1 UH-60 & 2 UH-1's
2 CH-47's
Most likely the ones from flightline south


P.s. Edited the OH-1 which is 632 and not 633
