Abandoned in the Rabaul area.

Wreckage
Displayed at the Kokopo War Museum outdoors. The front half and wings are from a A6M2 Model 21 Zero. The fuselage and tail section are from A6M3 Zero 3390.

Justin Taylan adds:
"Although the aircraft looks gutted, it is in remarkable condition. All the fittings and framework are present, even the wing 20mm cannons."
