Salvaged from the Papua New Guinean jungle, a restored World War II Japanese Zero fighter has taken to the skies over the land that gave birth to the once-feared warplane.

The aircraft — emblazoned with tell-tale rising sun symbols — is one of just a few airworthy Zero fighters left in the world, nearly eight decades after they struck fear into the hearts of Allied pilots.

I could understand why they don't want to give the wrong impressions. I think it is a part of history and it is something that should not be thought to be "bad" or a sign of things to come. I love seeing old planes get remodeled myself.
