The Zero!

The Zero is the famous Japanese airplane of the II World War, at the beginning of the conflict was the best and fastest fighter plane. Here a perfectly restored original Zero photographed at the Yasukuni jinja museum in Tokyo is really a  beautiful airplane. I read a great book written by a fighter pilot of Japanese air force who survived the war, titled Samurai! by Saburo Sakai. Really interesting book and a dramatic true story of his experience during the war and the post war American occupation, very sad.
