On 5 January in Asian history


In this photo provided by former Kamikaze pilot Toshio Yoshitake, shows Yoshitake, right, and his fellow pilots, from left, Tetsuya Ueno, Koshiro Hayashi, Naoki Okagami and Takao Oi, pose together in front of a zero fighter plane before taking off from the Imperial Army airstrip in Choshi, just east of Tokyo, Nov. 8, 1944. None of the 17 other pilots and flight instructors who flew with Yoshitake on that day survived. Yoshitake, now 82, is alive today and able to see the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II in August only because an American warplane shot him out of the air. He crash landed and was rescued by Japanese soldiers. (AP Photo)
