53-122 On display at the Nature & Science Museum, Ueno with the Sakae 12 engine visible. This Zero was field-modified in Oct. 1944 into a reconnaissance two-seater that served with the 253rd Kokutai in Rabaul. It ran short of fuel and was ditched by its pilot Ensign Kentaro Miyagoshi near Cape Lambert on Jan. 18, 1945. Both pilot and observer survived. Recovered in 1972, it was brought to Japan in 1975. The 53-122 tailcode is fictitious. (more of 53-122)
