The Almost Zero Flyby by shelbs2 The Almost Zero Flyby by shelbs2
Flyby of the "almost a zero". A converted T-6 Texan to look like one of the zeros used in "Tora Tora Tora" at the Olympic Airshow 2010

"Tora! Tora! Tora!" is also a great 70's war classic.

I think it's more entertaining and more historically accurate than Michael Bay's "Pearl Harbor".

They used lots of real aircraft and real explosions, fires, smoke fogs and many other pyrotechnics instead of CGI and yet for that times the visuals were breathtaking.

Awesome Snapshot!

Nice pic! They did a jolly good job on the conversion, you have to look really carefully to notice anything!

heh yeah, the wings and stabilizers are the only things that really give it away, they even gave it a three bladed prop
