Artist's Description

Pilot Ken Laird flew this aircraft in from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania for the 100 years “Celebration of Service” event at Princeton Airport, NJ. This is one of the replica Japanese aircraft used in the filming of Tora Tora Tora (meaning Tiger or charge/attack). The aircraft used in the film were highly modified American AT-6 and BT-13 trainers. The fighters, ‘Zeros’, were AT-6’s, the divebombers, ‘Vals’, were BT-13’s and the torpedo and levelbombers, ‘Kates’ consisted of AT-6 fronts and wings and BT-13 tails. I’ve no idea what i just said or which aircraft this is exactly! Hope I’ve gotten the right info….if not, feel free to correct me. ;) 17 September 2011 Bolmer’s Field, Princeton, NJ, USA ~ canon rebel xsi/450d
