A Betty after the war used as a transport? Perhaps Jap officers coming to surrender?

A Betty painted in the colour scheme required for safe passage for surrender talks.

Yep. It is one of the the two G4M's with the offical Surrender Delegation in a specialized paint job to prevent it from being shot down by Allied Forces. This is after its landing at Ie Shima island and just prior to the delegation's transfer to a R5D for transportation to the Philippines to meet with MacAuthur.

On the National Naval Air Museum's Facebook page. They have a number of interesting pictures of WW2 aircraft (along with Pre-war to post war).

Such as this one:

Thanks, I am going to see if I can get permission from the museum to use some of these pictures in a book I am writing. I am always looking for good sources of pictures for books in production.
