Photo Comment

A rare K5Y 'Willow', one of a number of leftover Japanese aircraft used by the fledgling Indonesian air force. The Indonesians called the type Cureng, or Tjoereng in a Dutch-influenced spelling, hence the serial. Apparently it's a word of Japanese origin meaning 'intermediate trainer'.
