D3A 'Val' at 711 Neal Ave. in Wahiawa, HI

Hi Folks,
Just visited the crash site of an Aichi D3A 'Val' dive bomber at 711 Neal Avenue in Wahiawa, Oahu and also talked to the owner. He did not know about the 7 December 1941 crash on his property (the current house was built in 1965), but told me that at the high-end of the street there still lives an old resident, who witnessed the attack on Wheeler Field and eye-contacted a low flying Asian (sic!) pilot who was smiling and waving to him without firing a single shot. Obviously he was focusing on his task/mission only.

Wondering if the identity (at least her launching carrier) has been established of the crashed Aichi, or the other one near the local power plant?
