Kaigun Yobi Kokudan - Yokosuka K4Y1 - video

An October 8, 1940 short clip from the NHK news collection featuring university student pilots of the "Kaigun Yobi Kokudan" (Navy Reserve Air Group) of the IJNAF. This particular group was based in Otsu city, Shiga prefecture and is seen flying Yokosuka K4Y1 Trainer Seaplanes from lake Biwa
Visible civilian registrations are: J-BBPJ, J-BEHD, J-BBPZ  and J-BEHC.
Notice that curiously the J-BBPJ registration is not included in the online civilian register or the very latest brilliant "J-BIRD" book. 
Check our past postings, here and here for more.

You did it again. Yet another great find. Short, but sweet.
And a floatplane to boot. Thank you. Keep up the good work.
