IJAAF & IJNAF wrecked aircraft #18 - Atsugi pt. 4, Mitsubishi G4M1 "Betty"

We continue with the Atsugi series of videos. Today it features an old Mitsubishi G4M1 Model 11 "Betty" with an unusual tail marking. We stumbled upon it in an older post, here, applied on the tail of a "Nell". The tail marking of the "Betty" is "教2-302" ("KYO(iku)2-302" - Training2-302).
Kiri found out that only fighter units were based in Atsugi except for the Sagami Kokutai which we mentioned in the previous post and was a maintenance training unit. Kiri believes that this is the marking of that unit and, although we haven't confirmed that beyond any doubt, I agree with her.

Note also the various other types scattered around in the airfield.
