Ditched January 20, 1943
Built by either Mitsubishi or Nakajima. Assigned to Junyō. Tail code unknown.
Took off from Wewak Airfield (Wirui Airfield) near Wewak on a mission to intercept B-24D Liberator 41-24101 on a reconnaissance over Wewak. Damaged in the combat, this Zero ditched into Wewak Harbor.
Possibly a Zero ditched in Wewak Harbor is this aircraft.
