Scan10013-06 - Captured Japanese plane in PNG, WWII

A captured Japanese Nakajima Ki-43 Hayabusa (Peregrine Falcon) fighter - aka 'Oscar' - parked by a sandy landing strip, somewhere in Papua New Guinea (PNG) during World War 2. Side view.

 

THANKS to the people who helped identify the planes in these photos (mostly Hawk914). I intend to update the captions with the information, but it might take some little while ...
