Mitsubishi G3M "Nell", Oppama Kokutai - video

A September 14, 1943 video clip from the NHK collection offering a very nice view of the maintainance of Mitsubishi G3M "Nell".
 
"Tip the top of the rudder to place first the lever at the botoom"
On August 24, headmasters of Technical Schools from all over the country joined the Navy for one day to experience first-hand the training of the maintenance crews, who are behind the brilliant Navy "Sea Eagles".
 
 
The unit is the Oppama Kokutai as indicated by the "オヒ" (OHI) in katakana on the tail.
The bottom says "the Navy saw this and gave the approval number 103"
Check HERE for more on the unit, the name and more.
