A6M5 Walkaround
by Rod Larson
Visited the Planes of Fame Museum on the day that the A6M5 Zero flew. It was quite exciting. Aerial photos are not very good because of the extreme range. It was obvious that this was not an official air show (FAA) cuz the Zero flew quite high. The pictures are mostly w/ 28-70 zoom on the ground & 170-700 mm in taxi and air. 
The following pictures are actually of 2 different Zero aircraft: Tail Number 61-120 is the one that flies and Tail Number HK-102 is in the hanger. You will even notice on one of the photos of HK-102 that the prop
has a very serious nick making it un-airworthy.
