1945. Zero fighters' desperate attack on a B-29 formation excorted by P-51 Mustangs. US raw 16mm color footage from Japan.
JUST IN!!! (from YouTube User mrcraig41:
Not all the attacking planes in this gun camera footage were the Mitsubishi A6M Zero. At various points in the video I was able to make out these types:
1) 1:22 - 1:29...Ki-100 Goshikisen
2) 1:39 - 1:42...Ki-61 Hien
3) 1:53 - 1:54...Twin engined heavy fighter, possibly Ki-45,
Ki-46, Ki-102, or J1N1 (not single engine).
4) 1:59 - 2:02...Possibly the Ki-61 or Ki-100.
This footage looks like a a mix of gun cams shot by both B-29gunners and their P-51D escorts flying from Iwo Jima.
