Eurocopter AS355 Ecureuil 2[]

Reg. JA355E, c/n 9608, with false Aichi Prefectural Police markings. It should be noted that this specific unit was delivered in 2002 despite the movie taking place in 1995.

Another Bell 412, possibly the same JA9616; this time bearing the registration "JA5505" which actually belonged to a Beechcraft 18 owned by the Japanese Coast Guard that retired in 1981.

While the movie claims this is Nagoya Airfield (known as Nagoya Airport in 1995, when this movie was set), it's likely another airfield is standing in for NKM.
