Aircraft History
Built by Nakajima. Assigned to ? Kokutai.

Ryan Toews adds:
"The cockpit photo is a better fit for a Nakajima built Zero. In the one photo of the forward fuselage note the space between the front of the MG access cover and the firewall. On the A6M3 this space is not there and the firewall is immediately in front of the machine gun covers."

Wartime History
Abandoned at Ballale Airfield on the eastern side of the runway.

Wreckage
Center section only. Missing is the engine, wings and tail. The instrument panel, without instruments remained until at least 1997.
