Rare 1988 close cropped low res rear view of the engineless nose and cockpit area of 'chopped' WWII vintage Japan - Army Kawasaki Ki 61 Hien (Tony), Cn 640, Serial Unknown, at the PNG War Museum in Port Moresby in 1988. She was built in Nov 1943 and arrived in PNG in Dec 1943. She was assigned to the 68th Sentai, and probably based at Boram Airfield in the Wewak area. She force landed near Aitape in 1944, and was recovered to the PNG Air Museum in 1975. (The wings at rear belong to a P-38.)
