With the last moment shift in aircraft and personnel, EII-307 is an ex-Kaga KATE. Note how green was used to
wipe out the Kaga red tail code, and a new red tail code applied...the tail code and meatball are the same density
in the black and white aerial photos, but not the vertical tail: which is still "Kaga" brown. The undersurface of Kaga B5N
were painted M3, unlike the Zuikaku I3. There may be the residual marking of the old Kaga large training number under
both wings...Zuikaku B5N had no such training numbers.
