These photographs come from Captured Enemy Equipment file at the National Archives, all photos are taken after the equipment was in our hands, by looking at all the pictures I would say some are test evaluation, lots are just the troops having some fun flying enemy airplanes....In April I plan on going back and recopy lots of the pictures as I was just learning to use the new digital camera.......Props were also supposed to be removed, no one wanted a last minute Kamikaze attack....

I think that the pictures are as follows (from the top):

1. Aichi Type 98 recon flying boat – E11A, code name “Laura” – probably from Yokosuka kokutai
2. Kyushu J7W Shiden – no allied code name
3. Probably same Laura
4. Kawanishi N1K2 Shinden – code name “George”
5. Same Laura
6. Nakajima Type 97 Ki-27 (code name “Nate) crashed into nose of (probably) Mitsubishi K-57 Type 100 transport (“Topsy”)
7. Kyushu Q1W1 patrol bomber (“Lorna”)
8. Mitsubishi F1M2 Type 0 observation seaplane (“Pete”)
9. Okha suicide attacker (“Baka” – Japanese for idiot)
10. Mitsubishi Type 100 recon – Ki-46 – “Dinah” plus A6M Zeroes and Yokosuka P1Y (“Frances” – on far right)
11. Kawasaki Ki-61 Type 3 fighter (“Tony”)
12. Mitsubishi J2M interceptor (“Jack”)
13. More Pete’s
14. Nakajima Type 1 fighter – Ki-43 – “Oscar”
15. Yokosuka K5Y Type 93 trainer – “Willow”
16. Kyushu K11W trainer – no allied code name
17. Ki-61 Tony of special attack (suicide) unit
18. Mitsubishi K-57 Type 100 transport (“Topsy”) – you can just see the top of the tail of an L2D2 (“Tabby”) transport – license built DC-3
19. Ki-61 Tony
20. Tachikawa Ki-54 (“Hickory”)
21. L2D2 (“Tabby”)
22. Mitsubishi Type 100 recon – Ki-46 – “Dinah”
23. Foreground – Nakajima A6M2-K Zero trainers. Background – Kawasaki Type 99 light bomber – Ki-48 – ”Lily”
24. Another Hickory
25. Another Tabby
26. Nakajima Type 95 fighter – Ki-10 - ”Perry”
27. Kawasaki Type 99 light bomber – Ki-48 – ”Lily”
28. Yokosuka K5Y Type 93 trainer – “Willow” – fitted out as a suicide attacker – fuel drum in rear seat
29. Difficult to make out the larger plane – maybe an experimental type. Under the wing and on the left are Mitsubishi Type 99 assault plane – Sonia. Background right – Tachikawa Ki-36 liason plane – Ida.
30. Tachikawa Ki-54 (“Hickory”)
31. Kawanishi N1K1 Kyofu (Rex)
32. Another Lorna
33. More Rex
34. Kawasaki Ki-100 – no allied code name
35. Mitsubishi J2M interceptor (“Jack”) with heavy cannon armament
36. Kawasaki Type 4 heavy bomber – Peggy
37. Hickory in foreground, the rest are Dinahs
38. Another Tabby
39. Aichi B7A carrier bomber – Grace
40. Mitsubishi Type 96 attack bomber – G3M – Nell
41. Another Tabby

I will post this over on j-aircraft.com and then we should have some definitive answers, including unit IDs.

Dear armyjunk,

I hope you are still out there?

I came across your photos a while back, but work and ill health got in the way of contacting you at the time. Now I am back at home and recovering I found the page again and wonder if you could possibly help me a couple of photos request? I am very interested in photos number 9, 12, 18 and 22 from the images you show. I wonder, would you be willing to e-mail me slightly higher resolution copies of these images for my files?

I have most of the other photos from the series, but missed these few when I last visited the National Archives in 2006/7. I am now living a long way from Washington DC these days, in the UK.

Best regards,

Joe
