Aircraft History
Built by Mitsubishi at Nagoya No. 3 Works. This aircraft has the redesigned later model tail turret. Delivered to the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN). Assigned to an unknown Kokutai, possibly 702 Kokutai or 705 Kokutai. Tail code ?36.

Wreckage
The rear fuselage of this Betty is abandoned in a boneyard area near G4M1 Betty 2671. The tail is laying on the left side with the tail resting on the ground. Removed are both stabalizers, the rear wheel, fuselage door and the interior is gutted. A 2m section of the top of the tail cone section appears to have been carefully cut out and removed, possibly during the war.

Justin Taylan adds:
"On the port side of the tail, the side facing downward, toward the ground, the last two digits of the tail number are clearly visible - 36 in large white numerals."
