Photo Comment

In 1969, movie studio 20th Century Fox had several Japanese WWII aircraft replicas constructed for the movie "Tora Tora Tora". The Mitsubishi Zeros were modified North American T-6s (and Canadian built Harvards). This one is WWII veteran 41-17422 that was released to the civilian market in 1948. The aircraft is still flying with the markings from the Japanese carrier Akagi used for the movie.
