The Mitsubishi MU-2 is a high-wing, twin-engine turboprop utility and transport aircraft manufactured by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, starting to develop the aircraft in 1956. The design encorporated over-wing spoilers and full-span flaps to allow for a high cruise speed, but also a low landing speed. The MU-2 was intended and utilised in both civilian and transoprt roles, with a number of MU-2s purchased for military operations. The aircraft can be separated to the earlier, short fuselage group and the later, long fuselage group. The short fuselage MU-2B-40 was the latest in its group, with advanced engines and added fuel capacity, which was manufactured form 1979. The MU-2 series were one of the most successful aircrafts in the post-war Japan’s aviation market.
