Your mystery plane looks like a "Babs" or a Mitsubishi C5M Type 98 Land Reconnaissance.The spatted wheels and the long greenhouse are the key ID points.Carlos
Thanks Carlos. You are the only person who has ventured a suggestion for this aircraft's identity and it is a good one.However, the aircraft is actually a Mitsubishi B5M1 "Mabel".
Hi Nick! I was just gonna e-mail you to say it's a B5M when I noticed the "2 comments" link :)
These surprise shots are some of only a very few photos of operational Mabels. Thanks.
