This is a C-54 American transport airplane which carried the Japanese envoy for the surrender to meet with General MacArthur.  Once the surrender papers were signed, the C-54 returned the Japanese envoy back to Ie Shima where they flew their Betty Bombers back to Japan.  You can read the full, exciting, story a couple of pages later in this exhibit.  Don't miss it.
