G4M 'Betty' Unveiled!

An incredible roll-out occurred during December 2011 in the form of a new-build nose section of a Mitsubishi G4M 'Betty' Japanese bomber. Owned by the Harada Collection; the rear of the aircraft is original and still under restoration - the forward section has been fabricated using another airframe found on Yap Island as a template. Once finished the aircraft will be the only complete Betty anywhere in the world!

  1. One of my all-time favourite bomber types - way beyond time it was brought back from extinction!
