Just off the bench,  Mitsubishi A6M2b Zero, Tainan Kokutai.  This aircraft was flown by NAP1/C Saburo Sakai on December 8, 1941.  Sakai was flying "V-107" on the first day of the war when he arrived over Clark Airfield, Luzon, Philippines at 12:28pm at an altitude of 22,400 ft as his unit flew fighter escort to Japanese Navy twin engine land based bombers that attacked the airfield.
