Built by Aichi at Watanabe Iron Works. Delivered to the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN). Assigned to an unknown Kōkūtai, likely 958 Kōkūtai based at Kavieng Harbor Seaplane Base.
Sunk into Kavieng Harbor off Kavieng.
This aircraft is upside down with the tail broken off and twisted forward on a flat sandy bottom.
Don Fetterly adds:
"This is upside down but in very good
condition. Floats torn away and you cannot get into the
cockpit, some bad damage
to the starbord wing but that's about all."
