Mystified[edit]

That "Nonetheless" in the second paragraph of the article is mystifying. It probably needs to be rewritten to clarify the point. Hue White 17:27, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

This is an Error[edit]

This phrase is incorrect: "During this operation, one of the Zero fighters from the Ryūjō, flown by Petty Officer Tadahito Koga, crash landed on the island of Akutan. Koga was killed in the crash due to a broken neck, but the aircraft remained largely intact. This was the first Zero fighter to fall into the hands of U.S. military intelligence."

A Japanese Zero was obtained in China BEFORE the US entered the war and shipped to the USA. Unfortunately, it was ignored as "everybody" knew Japanese planes were inferior. Henryjones000 (talk) 03:47, 16 November 2010 (UTC)
