1943 Mitsubishi A6M2 Type 21 Zero
National Museum of the US Air Force
Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Dayton, Ohio
We restored this aircraft for the United States Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. They provided a partially restored airframe and a second airframe that was recovered from the South Pacific Islands several years ago. The aircraft was restored as accurately as possible using factory drawings, photo research and written documentation. The airframe represents the Type 21 as they appeared while operating off of the South Pacific Islands.
