    I have an old aircraft magazine from the early seventy's ...Were they pulled a two seat Zero out of some water on a south pacific island...( Like they would be pulling it out of a lake in France...DUH...:shock: :oops: :lol: ...).. Its was "not" a trainer ...It was used in combat ..And I'm "thinking" that the American info said were and who had shot the Zero down..Did not have two controls ...The canopy was not the same as the pic we have here ..The trainer canopy here is much longer then the one in they found..It was hard to even see its two seat at first...And I "think" they had no clue it was two seat until the plane was raised... At the time of the magazine they were shocked at the two seat and were not sure of why and what it was for...So some were out there (I hope) is a two seat Zero in one peace ..The aircraft was very whole ...

    (It's been some time sents I've read the magazine..But I still have the magazine)...

    Great photos guys, always loved the A6M2-Ks...I once read that some A6M5s were field-converted to trainers too.

    Haztoys, I photocopied photos of that aircraft from Charles Darby's book 'aircraft wrecks of the South Pacific' (I think it was called). It was converted to trainer status in the field. The aircraft was restored in Australia, and now resides in the Tokyo science and technology museum.
    I'll send the pics to Wojtek (Wurger) and maybe he can scan and post them here for me.
