A rare flyable Zero performs a flyby at the Wings Over Camarillo airshow.  This aircraft was recovered from New Guinea in 1991, partially rebuilt from several A6M3s in Russia, and sent to the US for final restoration.  Currently, this aircraft uses a Pratt & Whitney R1830 engine instead of the original Sakai engine.  560 A6M3 Zeroes were built between December 1942 and summer of 1943. Produced after the Battle of Midway, the A6M3 had longer wings (with folding wing-tips for carrier use), a more powerful engine and had the longest range of all the Zeros.  Nikon D500 w/Tamron 150-600mm.
