Firsthand Accounts from Japanese Naval Pilots

Dan King’s well documented presentation; this provides a badly needed perspective about Japanese procedures, accounts from their pilots, cultural views, loss of seasoned personnel, (a willingness to be captured meant shame to their families) and other little -if at all- known facts.  Among the many previously untouched stories is the process that recruits went through to become pilots; extremely harsh training I had read about in Saburo Sakai’s book “Samurai”

Produced by Jarel & Betty Wheaton for Peninsula Seniors based on Dan’s presentation at the Western Museum of Flight.
