Two E11K night reconnaissance sea plane made as an experiment were converted as a transport plane, and it is said that it continued being used as a official boarding plane, or connection and a transport plane by the name of a 96 type transport plane for a long period of time.
I'm not sure that it's a amphibian or not.

Splendid set of pictures, blackkite, thanks! I'm always pleasantly surprised by the colorized photos, which are always very well done. It's not easy to do but these come out really well.

I didn't have much on the E11K, so these are all most welcome. Here's an additional set of E11A "Laura" (Aichi AB-14) images, hoping I'm not duplicating anything.

Hi! Kawanishi E11K.
Please enlarge the first picture a little bit after you open the file and you can see more clean image.

According to type 96 transport, someone says that it's a type 97 transport. ;D

Thanks. By the way, the word "Aircraft" never takes an "s" in English, it remains unchanged in the plural.

Did the Aichi E11A's wings could be folded like that of the E10A or the Kawanishi E11K?
