    A very fortunate pilot. The 22 was always, to my eye, the most aesthetically pleasing of the variants. It is great to see a flying A6M.

    Mr Yanagida flew his zero many times in Tokyo last week.
    He says he is going to train more Japanese pilots as an instructor.
    Mitsubishi would be busy for reproduction of replicas in the future.

    Wow. I wonder if Mitsubishi would build the trainer variant. It would make an interesting tourist destination to fly a Zero in Japan.

    I was privileged to recently see this aircraft up close at Planes of Fame. Truly a great plane.

    Terrific to see, Shinpachi, thank you.

    Wow! That's superb news! Any more info as to what will power them and has there been much interest?
