and of course the 'biggie' Mitsubishi makers of the AM6/Zero and still making aircraft today. amongst other things
and of course Kawasaki makers of the H8/Emily seaplane  and still making aircraft today. amongst other things
if anything Suburu are the odd one out not still making aircraft. instead it lineage is from Fuji
