Title: Found A Real Historical Plumb Here!
Post by: Bad Penny on June 23, 2011, 02:26:45 am
I was just beginning my research for a new article about Aviator1c Shigenori Nishikaichi, who flew from HIJMS Hiryu in the second wave of the air raid on Pearl Harbo(u)r on 7 December 1941, when I was stricken by a desire to find an illustration of his plane.  I thought the task to be hopeless, but, guess what?  I FOUND IT!!!

Here 'tis (it's the one on top of the page):

A6M2 Zero Type 21

I just hope that I can tell this man's story in a compelling manner, as he is clearly a man worthwhile, whose example of courage and devotion to duty truly inspires me.

Update:

I've decided not to write the article; a perfectly good one already exists online.

You can read it here:
