Nakajima E4N3 - Hokoku #43

Hokoku #43 was donated the same day with Hokoku #37; April 14, 1934. It was a Navy Type 90-2-3 Reconnaissance "Seaplane" or Nakajima E4N3. Note that the land-plane version of this particular type retained the "seaplane" designation.
Hokoku #43 was donated by the citizens of Saipan and was named "Dai Itchi Nanyo-go" because it was the first airplane donated from the Japanese South Pacific Mandate.
