| Captain Nario Iwanaga in flight gear with Ki-46 Dinah 2783 warming up at Vunakanau Airfield near Rabaul
In the background is Ki-46 Dinah 2783 with both engines warming up and both wheels in chocks. Likely, this photo was taken before departure at Vunakanau Airfield. Less likely, this photograph was taken after the surrender flight parked at Jacquinot Bay Airfield.
RNZAF caption 1945: "Mitsubishi Ki-46-II & Pilot, with engines running. Unknown location, believed to be New Britain. Allied code name: 'DINAH'. Good view of Japanese flight-suit."
