The Last Hamp


Legend Flyers Bob Hammer and his crew love a challenge. They have been restoring a Mitsubishi A6M3, Type O Carrier, Fighter Model 32 for several years and the results are magnificent. as of this date, August 2023, the aircraft is complete and nearing a first flight. 

Aircraft 3148 was manufactured in 1942 and was funded by the Manshukoku Chuto Gakko Go, a middle school in Manchuria and had graphics applied to the fuselage referencing the school. 3148 is the last remaining model 32 and the only surviving wartime built "Presentation Zero".

It was assigned to the Japanese Air Group 252 Kykutai (Air Group), 22nd Air Flotilla. 3148 initially operated from the aircraft carrier Taiyo during the defense of Guadalcanal between November 1942 and February 1943.
