Default Rare Bird

While reading through the newspaper last weekend I noticed a small article. It said that a Japanese Zero was flying into our municipal airport. It also said that there are only 4 flying Zeros left.
Well I grabbed my big zoom and headed for the airport.

Something Californians wouldn't have wanted to see 73 years ago.


Fly by.


Touchdown.





Some of the locals taking a peek.

nice, Mike. i'm fortunate to have at least one of those 4 remaining "flyers" very nearby... Paul Allen's Flying Heritage Collection here in Everett has an A6M3 that they take out and fly a couple of times a year... they're working on restoring at least two more, so soon, there may be 8 flying "Zekes"!
