Don’t We Usually Call That “an Aircraft Carrier”?:  Japan and the US are considering constructing a floating runway off Japan to alleviate concerns over noise pollution generated by night practice of US Navy airplanes, according to the Yomiuri Shimbun. The runway would be about 2.5 miles from Iwakune Marine Corps Air Station, which is 440 miles southeast of Tokyo. Construction costs for the project are estimated between $3.6 and $4.5 billion.
