Mitsubishi Ki-46-II "Dinah"

A Type 100 Command Reconnaissance Model II or Mitsubishi Ki-46-II "Dinah" which according to the caption of the vintage publication is "just back to base after another bombing mission against American Army bases in China; the Army Eagle pilot first gives his sword to the ground crew member". Unlikely that a "Dinah" made a "bombing mission", more probably she reconnoitred the area after the Army bombers have finished their job.
Note the pilot and the observer canopy hatches folding to the starboard side.

Thanks for the great photo, George. Hadn't seen this one anywhere.
