Mitsubishi G4M1 Betty, aircraft must be in for maintenance, you can see service latters cowlings and top gunner's hatch is open, no propeller on starboard engine. Camouflage scheme dark green topside and natural metal or gray underside that's my guess... AIRCRAFT OF INTEREST: Aircraft lower right of photograph could be either a Lockheed built Model-14 twin-engine transport, or a Tachikawa built machine. Also note the fuselage of another Model-14 in the background. In 1938 thirty aircraft were delivered to Tachikawa, and twenty were later sold to Japan Air Transport Co Ltd. Tachikawa built the Model 14 under licence, a total of 119 Type LO Transports were built, the transports were used until Japan's surrender in August 1945.

Aircraft above photo is a Mitsubishi G6M1-L2 GF-2 assigned to Combined Fleet Headquarters, Haneda Airport Tokyo 1943. After the unsuccessful G6M1 escort fighter the surviving aircraft were converted into G6M1-K Trainers and G6M1-L2 Transports. After serving as combat trainers, G6M1-Ks, were converted again, into paratroop transports the number converted is unknown. At the end of the Pacific war, about 160 G4M bombers were left out of the production of 2,479 built.
