Mitsubishi produced a total of 2,414 G4M airplanes but few remained when the war ended on August 15, 1945.
Four days later, two Brtty bombers landed at Ie Shima Island. They were painted in special 'surrender markings,' white overall with green crosses replacing the Japanese Hinomaru or red "meatball" national insignia. The official Japanese surrender delegation had boarded these two Bettys in Kyushu. Their next stop was the Philippines where the Allied delegation, led by General Douglas MacArthur, would witness the Japanese officials signing the surrender agreement. The end had arrived for the Japanese and the Betty bomber.

The last mission in which the G4M was used was of an entirely different nature. On 19 August 1945 two G4M1's that were painted all white with green crosses flew to Ie-Shima with the Japanese surrender delegation headed by Lieutenant-General Torashiro Kawabe. This meant the official end of the Pacific War and World War 2.

Ok, I'll buy that. It's an awesome skin idea too, b/c now that it's a surrender delegation, it would be kind of illegal to shoot it down! It's the perfect surprise attack platform!

Great Skin's... I wonder what happened to the orginal Aircraft.
Did they get scrapped or are they sitting in a Museum some where?
