Mitsubishi A6M3 Type 22 Surrendered Zero  In September 1945 the RNZAF got knowledge of an intact zero on Kara, a Airstrip in south Bougainville. The RNZAF wanted this as war booty, so the machine should be flown by a jap. pilot to Rabaul. This was forbidden by the booty commission because of the fear of an Kamikaze action. Thereupon Wing Cdr Bill Kofoed flew the machine. In October it was shipped then to Auckland and received the RNZAF serial NZ6000. The machine flew last in December 1945, the interest diminished fast. Because of place problems it was offered to the Auckland museum. Since this could not accommodate it however, it took till 1959 to come there. During the investigation it was determined that the machine was compound from not less than 8 different zeroes, an indication of the desperate situation of Japan 1945. 1997 it was restored. Also the original identification 2-182 emerged.(487).
