Aircraft History
Bulit by Mitsubishi. Assigned to either the Tainan Kōkūtai or 2nd Kōkūtai based at Buna Airfield (Old Strip).

Wartime History
Abandoned or destroyed on the ground at Buna Airfield (Old Strip). Other more complete wrecks were transported by barge to Australia, for evaluation at Eagle Farm.

Wreckage
Probably an A6M3 Model 32 Zero, the wreckage is too small, and badly damaged, to identify further.

Justin Taylan adds:
"I examined this wreckage in 2000 and 2003, and was unable to find any data or additional information to identify it, other than the fact it were parts of a Zero."
