Mitsubishi F-1 - Japan
Mitsubishi F.1 "Mare"
Serial: 201 (s/n.70-8201) Unit: 6th hikotai, 8th kokudan One of several F.1 from No. 6 Squadron painted up in what appears to be an aerobatic team scheme. Each plane from the lineup featured a different nose art. This one also has two blue stars underneath the windscreen, and a white band around the rear fuselage.
Unit: 8th hikotai, 3rd kokudan. The aircraft specially painted for a gunnery contest. The regular squadron markings consist of just the cat on the tail, so the addition of the black and yellow lightning flashes on the tail really add something.
