A Harvard Mk IV flies over the boggy area on Akutan Island in the Aleutian Island chain in far western Alaska on June 2 as part of the observance of the 75th anniversary of the Japanese bombing raid on Dutch Harbor, Alaska. The marshy area below the plane was where, during World War II, a Japanese Zero plane made an emergency landing and flipped, killing the pilot. The U.S. Navy recovered the plane, which was known for being fast and powerful, and sent it to a base in San Diego to be restored. Knowledge about the plane helped the Allies learn how to defeat Japanese Zero pilots in battle. (Photo courtesy Alaska Veterans Museum and Alaska Wing Commemorative Air Force)
