Re: Saburo Sakai

Sakai was an interesting and a bit controversial character.

There is an interview with him here

Beside his feelings for Genda (which are interesting), can anyone say why he was so upset about the Kawanishi N1K1-J? Perhaps not an absolute world beater in 1945 but most pilots at least seems to have considered it to be better than the 'Zero'
