In addition to the B-29 FiFi, we have a few Tora birds laid over to weather the storms. This one is a replica VAL dive bomber built on a BT-13 airframe. Many people don't know that part of their surrender after WWII was the destruction of their war making capability. That included their Air Force. There were no flying Zero's, Val's or Kate's. For the movie, replicas were made based on American airframes such as the BT-13 and AT-6.

It would have been better if I could have gotten this Val in frame with FiFi, who is still sitting on the ramp. But, it was not to happen.
