|P-51 Man O War
In addition to the world's only airworthy B-29 Superfortress, "FIFI", Commemorative Air Force units (wings) from throughout the U.S. will be bringing 10 legendary aircraft that will be part of the air shows and ground displays in the Warbird area.
Among them will be one of three airworthy Japanese Zeros in the world, courtesy of its Southern California Wing. This 560 A6M3 Model 22 Zero was recovered from Babo in New Guinea in 1991, partially restored from several A6M3s in Russia, then brought to the United States for completion of the restoration.
Currently, this aircraft has a Pratt & Whitney R1830 engine (compared to the original Sakai engine in the Planes of Fame Museum's flyable A6M5 Zero).
The Southern California Wing also recently announced it would also bring the P-51D Mustang Man O War to Oshkosh this year.
