If memory serves, neither of these Betty Bombers still exist. One crashed on the return to Japan and the other made a forced landing. Both airplanes were war wearies and so were expendable.

The green surrender crosses and white paint job were ordered by MacArthur's headquarters, as were the call signs used. The story about those two planes are told in two books. The most common of the two is "The Rising Sun" by John Toland and the other, hard to find but still around is The Fall of Japan, by William Craig.
