This Mitsubishi A6M2 was recovered from Ballale Island in the South West Pacific in 1968 and restored back to an airworthy condition with a Pratt and Whitney engine as N58245 . It was sold to the Pacific Aviation Museum as a static display in 2005 and its registration cancelled. The official FAA c/n was a part number and the c/n often quoted for this aircraft is 5356, which provided the cockpit. Other c/ns are 5451 (forward fuselage) and 5355. The markings however are for an aircraft that was forced down after the attack on Pearl Harbour.
