I think the photo of the zero, was flown by Lieutenant Commander Shigeru Itaya,received battle damage and crashed dived his zero into the first target of opportunity he could find, during the Pearl Harbor Attack.

second conclusion, was that Itaya was making his second attack at the Kaneohe armory. received ground fire,and may have been killed. The zero dived vertically into the ground, exploded, and skidded into a dirt bank.

NOW ITS THE INFORMATION WAR! and its World Wide. Friend's have become enemie's, and enemies have become friend's.

Itaya died in 1944, not over Pearl Harbor.

Lt. Commander Shigeru Itaya, leader of 1st attack wave over Pearl Harbor, was shotdown and killed by Japanese Army planes over the Kuriles in 1944. Anyone having more info post it here at ww2db.
