Hey Group, I'm a post-sound mixer working on a doc about a Japanese pilot who was involved in the only mainland US bombing during WWII, near Brookings, Oregon. Fascinating story, really. https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php?topic=36393.0 I'm trying to get a sense of what it might have sounded like. This was a small seaplane, a Yokosuka E14Y with a 340 hp Hitachi Tempu 12 9 cyl engine. An eyewitness to the attack (he was in a nearby fire outlook) described it as very odd sounding- like someone kicking a can down the street. So, probably much different sounding than a typical seaplane. Maybe he was throttled back. Who knows. Thanks.
