"Recognition of the Japanese Zero Fighter" was an educational dramatic short produced by the United States Air Force during World War 2. Its purpose was to instruct pilots in the Pacific theatre about recognizing hostile planes at long distances and avoid friendly fire incidents.

Most of the film is taken up with a short playlet in which a young pilot, portrayed by Ronald Reagan, is ordered on reconnaissance missions of the Pacific and encounters another plane which he can't tell is friendly or not. This plot is interspersed with animated segments illustrating the physical characteristics of the Japanese Zero and how it can be distinguished from an American plane.
