Wrong! 8O Not a DC-3/L2D type plane, but earlier Douglas Aircraft Company DC-2 (built under license by Nakajima Aircraft Company, Ltd.) - note the characteristic nose lights:

Yes, me wrong. :oops:
And what's your expert opinion on the first plane - the Wal features seem too characteristic? :)

Best regards, Aleks

Yes, but wrong tail shape and rather narrow fuselage for a flying-boat.

Have you seen this one? :wink:

Frankly, at first glance I also identified Kawasaki plane as "Wal licence" :oops: and concentrated on DC-2. Only when you asked me directly to check the plane I noticed something is wrong. :wink:

(Don't tell my boss, but I'm kinda absent at Friday, when weekend is near :wink: )

Hi Sturm,

I'd say Ki-27s without spats, cf. http://www.wwiivehicles.com/japan/aircr ... 7-nate.asp

On yu link are two good pic's of Ki-79b two seat trainers, one bomb laden of 113.Shimbu-tai (special attack unit).

BTW to be more specific on posted pic. The marking on the tail of Ki-79a posted is from 26. Kyoiku hikotai was used from march of 1944 to the end of the war in Manchuria.
