September 6, 2020 Ryukyu Shimpo
On September 3 and 4, ahead of regulations to restrict news reporting by drones over some of the U.S. military bases in Okinawa, Ryukyu Shimpo journalists captured aerial footage of Camp Hansen and the Camp Schwab coast, where the new Henoko base is under construction. No construction activities were visible, but the drone captured close-up views of the stone revetment built by the Okinawa Defense Bureau and a panoramic view of the construction site. It also shot footage of the Henoko Ordnance Ammunition Depot, which is being rebuilt, and Camp Hansen’s now-treeless exercise area.
