This aircraft, taking athletes to or from the Melbourne Olympics, was likely the first Japanese aircraft to visit Australia after WW2. That it stopped at Darwin was more significant because Darwin was bombed many times by Japanese aircraft during the war, the final raid in November 1943. JA6502 was sold in Peru in August 1966 as OB-R-846. Photo from: Library and Archives NT
