The author is solely responsible for this monograph and any errors contained in it are entirely his.
This monograph would not have been nearly as accurate and complete without the helpful cooperation of numerous individuals. I would like to thank Dave Pluth for maintaining the message boards on the J-Aircraft website. These have resulted in many fruitful exchanges of relevant information. Individuals too numerous to mention have participated in these exchanges.
Particularly helpful in providing information, insights or photographic
evidence have been James Landsdale, James Long, and Osamu Tagaya. At various
times Yasuho Izawa, and Henry Sakaida provided unpublished materials that
have proved useful in writing this monograph. Nick Millman, Andrew Obluski
and others responded to queries or shared insights. The list could go
on and the lack of a mention does not imply lack of appreciation.
