3rd Annual Air & Space Photo Contest
A Zero Goes Vertical

This plane (named after the corporation that built it) is known as the "Blayd Zero", and it is shown doing a vertical climb at the 2014 Wings Over Houston Air Show. Most of the Japanese Zeros seen in the air are actually US planes converted to resemble the Mitsubishi Zero from WW2. However, by using assorted parts for templates, this plane was meticulosly constructed in the 1990's to be an accurate replica of the Zero. It looks completely authentic, but only the landing gear uses original parts.
