So I'm writing a story and decided to use Hida Furukawa as the location. It has a high school with a field of 650 ft that theoretically could be used for a small aircraft to be use to take off. In the story, a meteor falling that can wipe the town out. A man decides to fly a plane into the meteor with some explosives on it to destroy the meteor and is successful at the cost of his "life."
I intentionally put that in quotes. As he is some dimensional traveler that controlled the meteor to fall. He staged a fake heroic death to jump into another dimension. In my story, I want to know what science/astronomer critics would say to give clues to how unnatural this is, so it helps the female protagonist believe that he is still alive and probably in another dimension.
Note (08/02/18) Based on everyone's feedback, I've changed location to Kakamigahara, Gifu Japan. It has a private airport that is sometimes used by the Japanese Airforce :) While I'm not going the fun with W-59 @CortAmmon suggested, I was tempted since I'd have access to planes that could fly higher lol.
