The aircraft has been on indoor display at Kakamigahara since the then aerospace museum (now Gifu-Kakamigahara Air and Space Museum) opened its doors in 1996.

In addition, only part of the wooden tail remained. The inscription on the back of Hino’s bust says December 1965 (Showa 40) and the name of its engraver, Ikuhisa Koganemaru. “And to further enrich the airport experience both landside and airside, a variety of exhibits and participatory activities introduce aspects of traditional Japanese culture, such as calligraphy, woodblock printing, and kimono wearing.”.

For an aircraft to be considered for certification, the general criteria followed are whether the tests conducted or know-how and technologies that went into that specific aircraft’s design contributed in any way to the development of Japan’s aviation technologies.

49 (Bunrindo [Japan], November 1994), Kanoya, January 2014. In the case of the Grade monoplane, the propeller used for that first flight was imported with the aircraft.

Pictured at Kawanishi’s Naruo Plant on November 30, 1943, directly after completion, is the 68th Type 2 Model 12 Flying Boat converted as the first production example of what was then provisionally designated as the Seikū (Clear Sky) Model 32. And since March 2015, the Narita Transit Program has provided passengers in transit at Narita Airport with traditional Japanese hospitality and service.

A newspaper eyewitness account from Dr. Aikitsu Tanakadate of the Provisional Military Balloon Study Group—to which Hino belonged—stated that it was at 3:50 p.m. on December 14, 1910, that Hino’s Grade had left the ground. Formally adopted for service with the Imperial Japanese Naval Air Force (IJNAF) in 1940, the three-seat Type 0 Reconnaissance Seaplane was designed by the Aichi Watch and Electric Machinery Company, Ltd., which had boosted its development capabilities through technological collaboration with the famous Germany aircraft company, Ernst Heinkel Flugzeugwerke GmbH. For years, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government has been demanding the return of this airspace to Japanese authority, but to no avail.

The state of the aircraft is not necessarily that good, but having been preserved along with the many items of equipment that had remained in the cockpit, great value is derived from the ability to gain an insight into the aircraft’s appearance when in operational service.

(Japan Aeronautic Association Aviation Heritage Archive). A book published in 1944 (Kaigun Kōkūshibanashi [Tales of Naval Aviation History] by Vice Admiral Hideho Wada [1886–1972]) contains the statement: “Even now, the propellers of the aircraft used for the first flights of both captains are housed in the Science Museum in Ueno, where they retain their prestigious eternal form.” For these reasons, the staff at the Aviation Heritage Archive believe that the two propellers in the National Museum of Nature and Science are those that were fitted to the two aircraft.

Widely used by the IJNAF, a total of 1,423 were built, the highest production figure of any Japanese seaplane, and the type can thus be said to be a typical example of them, including in terms of its operational performance record.           Komatsushima As the aircraft was stored indoors for a long period of time, its state of preservation is good, with comparatively little onset of deterioration seen in its metal parts. In the cases of both these aircraft, many propellers were purchased in Japan and from overseas, but these are thought to be the only examples in existence. At the time, Japan was only a year away from initiating the Pacific War, the four years of which the monument amazingly survived. Having itself reportedly suffered the failure of its port engine en route, the Ki-54 came down in Lake Towada, which straddles the border between the two prefectures.

May 12  Takayubaru During 1960, the aircraft was flown from Chofu airfield in Tokyo. The Type 0 Reconnaissance Seaplane displayed at the Bansei Tokkō (Special Attack) Peace Museum had sunk to a depth of five meters, settling on the seabed around 600 meters from the shore at Kaseda (today Minami-Satsuma City) in Kagoshima Prefecture. 1:24 July 12, 2010 Start of Lake Towada Survey 1:37 Aug. 4, 2010 Variety of Aircraft Forms Captured (with acoustic depth finder) 1:59 CG topography of lake bed in area known as Nakanoumi (max.

There have been calls for the government to shut down Itami and force domestic traffic to Kansai, especially if the Maglev train is extended from Tokyo to downtown Osaka. Sept.  Misawa

May 18  Maizuru Tokugawa’s final resting place is at the Catholic church close to the Tama Cemetery in Fuchu, Tokyo. The Army Ministry had just established the Yoyogi Army Parade Ground in 1909, the year prior to those first flights, as a location for troop training on the hilly area that straddled the town of Shibuya and the village of Yoyohata in Tokyo.

One of them, Katsuji Koyanagi (reading of name to be confirmed), who had been assigned to the Utsunomiya Training Unit, has a theory that the Lake Towada crash might have been caused by water in the 87 octane fuel, which was a prevalent problem at that time.

For these reasons, the Type 0 Reconnaissance Seaplane in Minami-Satsuma has been recognized as an important artefact that presents the history of IJNAF seaplanes to this day and can be said to be of very high cultural value. Seen as strengthening the likelihood of a type’s inclusion in terms of cultural value are that the aircraft is well preserved and as far as possible remains in the same condition it was when in experimental or operational use and thereby conveys something of the history of Japanese aircraft development. May 19  Ohmura June 1  Kasumigaura It would certainly be interesting to know more about the two men involved and their attitude toward one other. Since its inception, the Archive thus sees itself involved in a race against time to preserve for posterity any of the remaining artefacts and documents before they vanish, items that may have been handed down but become scattered and possibly damaged in the process. Regarding documents as no less important than the aircraft themselves, the items that the Archive is charged with conserving range from blueprints and photographs to aircraft components and complete aircraft.

This achievement was recognized by Jane’s All the World’s Aircraft and in certain U.S. circles, though the former has subsequently sought to distance itself from that particular decision. As only one aircraft was produced for the purpose of PS-1 development, the UF-XS is a unique aircraft that represents the starting point of Japan’s postwar flying boat development that has continued to the US-2 amphibian. Dec. 8  Kisarazu, JMSDF Encompassing Meiji Shrine and Yoyogi Park, the area to the north even today retains the topography gleaned from a contemporary relief map and reveals traces of its appearance at the time of those first flights.

The aircraft owned by Minami-Satsuma City is one of only two surviving Type 0 reconnaissance seaplanes in Japan—the other is displayed in a dilapidated state outside the PR building at JASDF Gifu AB (link)—and to a great extent remains in the state it was when in operational service. Many things happen in today’s Japan and it is hectic autumn. Dec. 1  Hyakuri
