Built by Mitsubishi. Unknown if assigned to any unit before the war ended.
This bomber was based at Yokosuka Airfield (NAS Oppama) near Yokosuka. One of three G4M3 Betty Model 34's captured at this airfield at the end of the war.
Postwar, this Betty was transported to the United States for technical evaluation.
It was acquired by the National Air & Space Museum (NASM), and is preserved in storage at NASM Garber Facility. The nose including
the entire flight deck, ten feet of the fuselage is displayed, while
the two engines and their cowlings are in storage. The nose section
is one of the world's only preserved Bettys in any museum worldwide.
