    During and after the Second World War British Commonwealth, American and French forces engaged in air technical intelligence (ATI) collection and evaluation of captured Japanese aircraft. Allied ATI units were established at Calcutta in India in 1943 and at Saigon in French Indo-China in 1945.  The Calcutta unit collected and examined a number of badly damaged aircraft.  A few relatively complete aircraft were acquired, including examples of the Mitsubishi Ki-21-Ia (Army Type 97 Heavy Bomber Model 1A), codename “Sally”, Nakajima Ki-43-1A (Army Type 1 Fighter Model 1A Hayabusa (Peregrine Falcon)), codename “Oscar”, Mitsubishi Ki-46-III (Army Type 100 Command Reconnaissance Plane Model 1), codename “Dinah”, and Kawasaki Ki-48 (Army Type 99 Twin-engine Light Bomber Model 1A), codename “Lily.”  After the end of the war, collection continued and flyable examples of the Nakajima Ki-44-1a (Army Type 2 Single-seat Fighter Model 1A Shoki), codename “Tojo”, the Mitsubishi J2M3  Interceptor Fighter Raiden (Thunderbolt) Model 11), codename “Jack”, the Mitsubishi G4M3 (Navy Type 1 Attack Bomber Model 11), codename “Betty”, and the Mitsubishi A6M5 Model 52 Zero-Sen (Navy Type 0 Carrier Fighter), codename “Zeke” were obtained and flown.  The Saigon unit obtained a number of flyable aircraft that were on surrendered Japanese airfields in French Indo-China.  Many of the aircraft collected ended up as museum pieces.

    Japanese War Prizes in England

    Several impressive Japanese aircraft are displayed at the Aerospace Museum at RAF Cosford in the UK.  The museum’s collection of Japanese aircraft comprises the only remaining Japanese aircraft transported to the UK after the Second World War.  At the end of the war, towards the end of 1945 a number of aircraft made up of Japanese Naval and Japanese Air force planes surrendered at Tebrau, a Japanese wartime airstrip in Malaysia.  The planes were flown by Japanese air-crews.  The British applied nationality markings and the acronym Allied Technical Air Intelligence Unit – South East Asia (ATAIU-SEA).

    64 aircraft were selected for shipment to the UK, but due to limited shipping space only 4 made it to the UK.  These four aircraft included a Mitsubishi A6M5 Model 52 Zero-Sen (Navy Type 0 Carrier Fighter) codename “Zeke”, (the cockpit is now in the IWM), a Mitsubishi Ki-46-III (Army Type 100 Command Reconnaissance Plane Model 1), codename “Dinah”, 5439, a Kawasaki Ki-100-1a (Army Type 5 Fighter Model 1A), and a Kyushu K9W1 (Navy Type 2 Primary Trainer Momiji), codename “Cypress” (scrapped after accidental fire damage).  The Ki-46 and Ki-100 are today on display at the AMC.  The aircraft were sent via ship to No 47 MU, Sealand, for crating and storage, in February 1947.  In November 1985 they were transferred to RAF museum reserve collection RAF St Athan, before being moved to RAF Cosford in June 1989.  These aircraft were: Kawasaki Ki-100-1b (Army Type 5 Fighter Model 1A) (Serial No. 8476M); Yokosuka MXY7 Ohka Model 11 (Tail Number I-13); Mitsubishi Ki-46-III (Army Type 100 Command Reconnaissance Plane Model 1), codename “Dinah”  (Serial No. 5439); a Mitsubishi A6M5 Model 52 Zero-Sen (Navy Type 0 Carrier Fighter), codename “Zeke”, and a Mitsubishi A6M3 Model 52 Zero-Sen (Navy Type 0 Carrier Fighter), codename “Zeke” (Manufacture Number 3685), Tail Number Y2-176).  (Source: Steve Dodd, Cosford museum member)
