I worked in Avionics and Electrical Engineering at Mitsubishi Aircraft International July 79 through the company's closure in March 1986. The MU-2 (both long and short models) were a fun project to work on. And the Japanese professionals brought over from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Nagoya, Japan were wonderful wot work with - extremely interested in their "American experience".
If they were still here, I might probably still be with them.

Cool photo! I've read that these planes have safety issues.(??)

Most of issues were related to pilots not understanding the flight controls and how to handle EO situations properly. There were no changes made to the aircraft, but pilots had to have special training. It's got to do with the MU using spoilers for roll control, not ailerons.

Really nice pic! I really like the feeling of movement, with the props spinning visibly, and the background just a blur from the planes's takeoff speed.

I lost a business partner, his two brothers our company attorney and our pilot ina crash over Atlanta Texas September 1981 Returning from Dallas Love to Thomson Ga. NTSB said icing at fl 260 but later learned autopilot malfunctioned and allowed trim to set at full nose down. A very nice plane but a lot tougher to fly vs a king air. RIP my Friends
pregnant much...

I worked on a lot MU2s in Australia where their also known as the Rice Rocket.
We also had at least 2 prangs with everyone on board killed.
Eventually icing on the belly was found to be the cause.
