Yokota Drops C-21s:

The 459th Airlift Squadron at Yokota AB, Japan, has traded its C-21s small transport jets for C-12J turboprops in a not quite even swap—four for three. Navy Seaman A.C. Rainey reports that the base has flown the C-21 for 21 years. The C-12s can haul more and land at some fields inaccessible to the sleek C-21.
