Kawanishi H6K2-L (Mavis) - 九七式飛行艇

Καλό μήνα (happy new month, 良い新しい一ヶ月を) with a photo, from a vintage publication, of two Navy Type 97 Transport Flying-Boats or Kawanishi H6K2-L (Mavis) in flight.
The main easily recognisable external difference between the H6K2-Ls and the K6K4-Ls is the number of windows on the fuselage sides in front of and right behind the cockpit. The K6K2-Ls had 2-3 or less openings while H6K4-Ls had at least six windows.
We hope you like the clear photo showing various details of the flying boat in the wing, engine and support float areas.
