Captured Axis Aircraft



Last revised January 6, 2019



Numerous German, Japanese, and Italian aircraft were captured during the war and were evaluated by US authorities.  With few
exceptions, they were not given USAAF or US Navy serial numbers, but were instead assigned identification numbers by the individual
commands that assumed control of these aircraft.  Each command had their own identification number system.  Since there was no
uniformity, the system could be quite confusing.  Sometime, when a captured aircraft was transferred from one command to another, 
it was assigned a new identification number.  Some of these aircraft were never issued an identification number at all. 


Foreign Equipment (FE)

General Hap Arnold ordered the preservation of four of every type of aircraft used by the enemy forces. One of each was to be 
for the USAAF, USN, RAF and Museum purposes.

A number of Axis aircraft, plus a few Allied aircraft were shipped to the USA for testing by the USAAF and were assigned to the 
Foreign Equipment Branch, Technical Data Laboratory, Air Technical Service Command, based at Wright Field, 
Dayton, OH.  With a shortage of space at Wright Field, the Foreign Aircraft Evaluation Center based at Freeman Field, IN was 
re-assigned as a subsidiary location where storage, maintenance and preparation took place before 
the aircraft were flown to Wright Field for testing. 

Along with other captured equipment, they were allocated ‘FE’ (Foreign Eevaluation) serials.   During a re-organisation of the Air 
Technical Service Command (ATSC), the Technical Data Laboratory,   Materiel Command became part of T-2 Intelligence. It appears 
that following the organizational change, the numeric part of serials were retained, but the prefix was changed to ‘T2’.   

Many of these aircraft did not carry their identity; others only carried 
the basic number. It seems that Japanese aircraft, mostly captured by US naval forces, assigned low numbers were 
also assigned with a ‘N’ prefix.

		revived when an Italian plane managed to visit Japan. It was the intention that the 2nd prototype should make 
		the attempt, but it vanished during the flight, probably shot down by long-range allied fighters. The sole 
		remaining first prototype of the Tachikawa Ki-77, that in the meantime had been used to set an inland 
		distance record, was found by US forces at the end of the war at Yamanashi airfield in Japan. Shipped from

FE-6430	Nakajima Ki-43-II-Otsu Hayabusa (Allied code name ‘Oscar’)
		(MSN 6430)	Built by Nakajima Hikoki K.K. Jan44. No known markings or tail code. Operated from Hollandia, New Guinea. 
		During late Apr44, this Ki-43 was captured by the US Army in the Hollandia. Afterwards, inspected by the Allied 
		Technical Air Intelligence Unit TAIU-SWPA. During the middle of 1944, this Ki-43 (also known as Hollandia Oscar #2) 
		and Ki-43-II Oscar MSN 5894 were repaired at Cyclops airfield by American personnel from the US Army Air Force 
		84th Airdrome Squadron. Both Oscars were repaired using spare parts found in the area and parts from other Oscars. 
		This Oscar was stripped to bare aluminum finish and painted with US star-and-bar markings and a red and white 
		tail rudder. The cowl had a circular motif with "84" for the 84th Airdrome Squadron painted on both sides. 
		This Oscar received a modified flat sided movable canopy similar to that fitted to the Ki-43-I. Presumably the 
		canopy was obtained from a model 1 and modified to fit the front fixed section of the Ki-43-II canopy. 
		By Sep44, this Oscar was test flown in the Hollandia area. Later, this Oscar was loaded aboard the escort 
		carrier USS Attu and transported to the United States for technical evaluation. Received by TAIC, it was 
		designated "10" stenciled on the tail with "Technical Air Intelligence Center" on the right side of 
		the cockpit and "Oscar 2" on the right side of the nose cowling. The plane was identified by the Wright Field 
		technical intelligence unit as FE-6430 (later T2-6430), but they thought the number not to be the original 
		Japanese manufacture number as they were confused about the various parts with different manufacture numbers. 
		The pilot seat of MSN 6430 appeared to be that of MSN 5894, the 'other' Oscar (Hollandia Oscar #1), that had 
		suffered landing gear problems upon landing after its maiden test flight. Foreign Equipment Branch,

Evaluation Branch (EB)

Aircraft assigned to the Evaluation Branch, Technical Data Laboratory, Technical Service Command, Wright Field, Dayton, OH
were assigned an "EB" (Evaluation Branch) prefix number, at first starting with EB-1 and EB-2, and later 
a system was introduced that allowed more distinction, German aircraft given a number in the 100-sequence, Japanese aircraft a 
number in the 200-sequence and Italian a number in the 300-sequence. The EB-code system was superceded by 
the FE-code system [for Foreign Equipment]. Aircraft which were still extant when the Air Materiel Command 
came into existence were renumbered as T2-xxx, T-2 being the Technical Intelligence Group designation.



EB-1		Messerschmitt Bf.109F
		(WkNr 7640) Presented to the USAAF by the Soviets during Nov 1942. Arrived at Eglin AAF, FL, Mar 21 1944. Later re-
		serialed EB-100.

		(MSN 3372)	22nd Koku Sentai Shireibu Fuzoku Sentokitai, tail code V-173. While on transfer to Saigon, French Indochina 
		with a scheduled stop for refueling on Hainan Island, China,
	 	the aircraft was captured 26Nov41 when it ran out of fuel due to bad weather and force-landed, together with V-174, 
		on the beach near Qian Shan on the south-eastern coast 
		of Leichou peninsula. Transport of the aircraft parts to Liuchow, a place where it could safely be restored, 
		took several months. There it was rebuilt by Chinese engineers, 
		combining parts of the two aircraft and tested by TAIU-CHINA as P-5016. Flown to Kweilin by the commanding 
		officer of 75th Fighter Squadron. It suffered a force landing 
		due to failure of the landing gear to extend and was repaired by American engineers. In early 1943 
		the Zero was flown from Kunming to Karachi, India with an escort flight 
		of 23rd Fighter Group Curtiss P-40K Warhawks. One by one, all the Warhawks aborted their escort mission 
		and the Zero arrived in Karachi alone. There the Zero was 
		crated and shipped to the USA for further testing by Evaluation Branch, Technical Data Laboratory, Technical 
		Service Command, Wright Field, Dayton, OH as EB-2.

Technical Air Intelligence Unit (TAIC)

The combined USN, USAAC, RAAF unit tasked with evaluating Axis aircraft captured in the Pacific theatre, was the Technical 
Air Intelligence Unit (TAIC). Captured aircraft appear to have received US markings and been allocated ‘TAIC’ numbers. 
Aircraft shipped to the US were assigned to the Technical Air Intelligence Center at NAS Anacostia, DC.

TAIC 1	Mitsubishi A6M2 Zero
		Built by Mitsubishi 19Feb42 at their Nagoya plant. Delivered to the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Force (IJNAF) and 
		assigned to the light aircraft carrier Ry?j? with tail code D1-108. The aircraft took off from the Ry?j? on its 
		first operational mission over Dutch Harbor, Amaknak Island, Unalaska, Alaska as part of a diversionary 
		raid prior to the Battle of Midway 3Jun42. At Dutch Harbor it was hit by ground fire puncturing the fuel 
		supply and had to make a forced landing on Akutan Island. The Zero flipped over in the soft marsh, killing 
		the pilot on impact. The wreck was spotted on 10Jul42 by a Consolidated PBY Catalina. A US Navy team visited 
		the crash on 11Jul42 and found the Zero upside down and damaged, but still repairable. It was carefully 
		lifted and transported aboard a barge to Dutch Harbor and then to NAS North Island near San Diego, CA, 
		arriving there 12Aug42. It was repaired and ready for its first flight 26Sep42. The Zero was tested in 
		the San Diego area under control of the Test Section, NAS Anacostia, MD. During the tests the Zero 
		was flown against various American fighters, including a Lockheed P-38F Lightning, a Bell P-39D-1 Airacobra, 
		a Curtiss P-40F Warhawk, a North American P-51 Mustang and a Vought F4U-1 Corsair. Ferried to Test Section, 
		NAS Anacostia, MD. Damaged in a landing accident at Greenville, NC 5Jan43. Technical Air Intelligence 
		Center (TAIC), NAS Anacostia, MD 1944. Assigned TAIC 1. Ferried from NAS Anacostia to NAS Patuxent River, MD 
		23Aug44 but force landed after engine failure at Andrews Field, MD; continued to NAS Patuxent River 24Aug44. 
		NAS North Island, San Diego, CA by 14Sep44. The Zero was destroyed in a training accident in Feb45 when a 
		taxying Curtiss SB2C Helldiver crashed into it. From the wreckage a wing tip and some instruments were salvaged 
		which were donated to the Navy Museum, Washington Navy Yard, DC. The Alaska Heritage Museum and the 
		Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum also have small pieces of the Zero.
TAIC 2	Untraced.
TAIC 3	Untraced.
TAIC 4	Untraced.
		The untraced TAIC numbers are believed to include the following aircraft:
			1x Aichi E13A reconnaissance seaplane (Allied code name ‘Jake’). 
				May have been MSN 3167 found in wrecked condition at Chichagof Harbor, Attu, Aleutian Islands Jun43.
			1x Nakajima A6M2-N fighter floatplane (Allied code name ‘Rufe’)
			1x Focke-Wulf Fw 190

		(MSN 5357) Built by Nakajima Hikoki KK May43. It was assigned to the Japanese Naval Air Corps on the home 
		island of Honshu. In a few months, it moved to Iwo Jima, and then in March 1944, was reassigned to Asilito, 
		Saipan. 261st K?k?tai, with tail code 61-120. On 18Jun44 it was captured, together with other Japanese aircraft, 
		by US Marines at Aslito Field, Saipan. Shipped from the Garapan anchorage off Saipan, Mariana Islands to the 
		USA 8Jul44 on USS Copahee (CVE-12), arriving NAS San Diego, California, 28Jul44. Technical Air Intelligence 
		Center (TAIC), NAS Anacostia, MD. Assigned TAIC 5. First flight at San Diego 5Aug44. Ferried to NAS Anacostia 
		22Aug44. Tactical Test Division, NAS Patuxent River, MD 23Aug44 for evaluation. One of the pilots to fly 
		it was Charles Lindbergh. The aircraft was ferried back to NAS Anacostia 30Nov44. Returned to NAS North Island, 
		San Diego on 6Dec44, where frontline combat pilots were also given a chance to check out the Zero. 
		Altogether the Zero logged over 190 hours of flight time in the USA by Sep45. Flown to NAS Alameda, CA 30Sep45. 
		Declared surplus. The aircraft was sold to Edward T. Maloney who at first had no room to exhibit the aircraft, 
		so it was put into storage. On 12Jan57 Maloney opened his "The Air Museum" in Claremont, California where 
		he displayed the Zero with code V-101 and later its own original 61-120. In 1965 the Air Museum moved to 
		Ontario Airport, Ontario, California. In 1970 redevelopment of the airport at Ontario forced The Air Museum 
		to move again. The non-flyable aircraft became part of the "Movie World: Cars of the Stars and Planes of Fame Museum" 
		in Buena Park, California, near Knott's Berry Farm. In 1978 the Zero was made airworthy again, using an 
		original Nakajima Sakae engine, registered 3May78 as N46770. After that the aircraft made a six month journey, 
		from Jul78 till early 1979, to Japan, making it the first A6M Zero to fly over Japanese soil since WW2. 
		Back in the USA it was damaged during a landing at Chino, CA on 25Jun82, but was repaired. Another tour in 
		and over Japan followed in 1995 and it also appeared in the movie "Pearl Harbor". The aircraft left Chino 
		30Oct12 for yet another visit to Japan for displays, returning to Chino in Nov13.
TAIC 6	Nakajima B5N2 (Kate)
		(MSN 2194)	This B5N2 Type 97 Carrier Attack Bomber was built in December 1943. Equipped with H-6 ASV radar, 
		the 'Kate' had been attached to the General (Combined) Escort Force or Rengo Goei Butai (GEB), serving there
		with the 931st Kaigun K?k?tai. After the capture of Saipan in June 1944 this B5N2 Kate, with the tail-code KEB306, 
		was found abandoned at Aslito airfield. Shipped from the Garapan anchorage off Saipan, Mariana Islands to the 
		USA 8Jul44 on USS Copahee (CVE-12), arriving NAS San Diego, California, 28Jul44. Technical Air Intelligence 
		Center (TAIC), NAS Anacostia, MD. Assigned TAIC 1. First flight after overhaul 16Nov44. Initially used to 
		evaluate the effectiveness of the radar equipment against US naval vessels off the Delaware coast, with the 
		equipment being operated by the Naval Radio Laboratory. Tactical Test Division, NAS Patuxent River, MD 13Dec44. 
		Technical Air Intelligence Center (TAIC), NAS Anacostia, MD 27Apr45. In Oct45 the Kate and a Zeke were 
		attached to a group known as ‘The Navy’s Flying Might’ at NAS Wildwood, Rio Grande, NJ, set up as a 
		travelling display to take part in nationwide Victory Loan promotions across the USA. Believed to have been on 
		static display at the World's Fair of Aviation, Offutt Field, Fort Crook, Omaha, NB July 1946.
TAIC 7	Mitsubishi A6M5 Model 52 Zero
		(MSN 4340)	Built by Mitsubishi December 1943. Assigned to the 261st Kokutai with tail code 61-???. Likely, the 
		tail code was 61-106, though 61-108 has been quoted as well. However, that code has also been cited for 
		another airframe (that of A6M5 MSN 2193 'TAIC 8'). During June 1944 the aircraft, without its right stabilizer, 
		was captured at Aslito airfield on Saipan by US Marines. Shipped from the Garapan anchorage off Saipan, Mariana 
		Islands to the USA 8Jul44 on USS Copahee (CVE-12), arriving NAS San Diego, California, 28Jul44. 
		Technical Air Intelligence Center (TAIC), NAS Anacostia, MD 1Sep44. Assigned TAIC 7. First flight at NAS 
		Anacostia 14Dec44. Next flown 21Dec44 then transferred to the USAAF. Evaluation Branch, Technical Data Laboratory, 
		Technical Service Command, Wright Field, Dayton, OH. Renumbered as FE -130.
TAIC S7	Kawanishi N1K1-J Shiden (George)
		5511 ‘201-53’ 201stKokutai. Evaluated by TAIC, Southwest Pacific Area at Clark AFB, Philippines, and allocated tail number 
		S7, although photographed as ‘TECH AIR INTEL UNIT-S.W.P.A’ ‘7’. Scrapped.
TAIC 8	Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero (Zeke)
		(MSN 2193) ‘61-108’ 261stKokutai.  Captured at Aslito airfield on Saipan by US Marines Mar44. Shipped from the 
		Garapan anchorage off Saipan, Mariana Islands to the USA 8Jul44 on USS Copahee (CVE-12), arriving NAS San Diego, 
		California, 28Jul44. Technical Air Intelligence Center (TAIC), NAS Anacostia, MD. Assigned TAIC 8. Operated by 
		TAIC based at Ontario Field, CA in late 1944. 412th Fighter Group, Fourth Air Force, Bakersfield MAP, CA. 
		Evaluation Branch, Technical Data Laboratory, Technical Service Command, Wright Field, Dayton, OH. Army 
		Proving Grounds, Eglin Field, Florida late 1945. It now seems that MSN 2193 should be MSN 1293 and that the 
		original tail code was 8-24, most likely for the Sentoki Dai Hachi Hikotai.
TAIC 9	Kawasaki Ki.61 Hien (Tony)
		(MSN 263) Previously XJ003. By Jul44 the aircraft was among the aircraft, equipment, documentation and personnel 
		aboard a 'Victory Ship' heading for San Francisco, from where the whole establishment was taken by train to 
		its new 'Hangar 151' facility at NAS Anacostia, MD. Technical Air Intelligence Center (TAIC), NAS Anacostia, MD. 
		Assigned TAIC 9. During Jan45 it was painted back in pseudo-Japanese markings. Tactical Test Division, 
		NAS Patuxent River, MD Jun45. Evaluated against the Wildcat, Corsair, Hellcat, Tigercat and Bearcat, but 
		the tests were suspended when bearing metal was found in the engine oil. During a ferry flight from NAS Patuxent 
		River to the Army Proving Grounds, Eglin Field, Florida 2Jul45, the engine failed and the aircraft was 
		written off in the forced landing at Yanceyville, North Carolina.
TAIC 10	Mitsubishi Ki.46-11 Type 100 (Dinah)
		command reconnaissance aircraft
 		(MSN 2846)	Assigned to the 10th Reconnaissance Sentai of the Japanese Army Air Force. No known markings or tail code. 
		Operated from Hollandia, New Guinea. Abandoned largely intact at one of the Hollandia area airfields. 
		On 23Apr44 this aircraft was captured by US Army troops when they liberated the Hollandia area. 
		During Sep44, this Dinah was repaired by ground crews from the 89th Attack Squadron, 3rd Attack Group, 
		Fifth Air Force, to airworthy status. It was repainted with US star-and-bar markings and with a red and white 
		stripped rudder, bordered at the tail in blue. On the nose at first the squadron emblem of the 89th Attack 
		Squadron was applied and later replaced with the group emblem of the 3rd Attack Group, the "Grim Reaper". 
		During Jan45, the aircraft was shipped to the United States aboard USS Attu. Technical Air Intelligence 
		Center (TAIC), NAS Anacostia, MD. Assigned TAIC 10. Tactical Test Division, NAS Patuxent River, MD. 
		Army Proving Grounds, Eglin Field, Florida. Last mentioned on 29May45 when it had a taxying accident at 
		Eglin Field. Fate unknown, likely scrapped.  Photographed at NAS Anacostia, DC, post 1945.
TAIC S11	Nakajima Ki.44 (Tojo)
TAIC 11	Mitsubishi A6M5 model 52
		(MSN 1303)	Built by Nakajima Hikoki K.K. Assigned to the 261 K?k?tai, tail code 61-121. In Mar44, this Zero 
		operated from Aslito airfield on Saipan. During Jun44, this Zero was captured by US Marines intact at Aslito field. 
		It was scheduled for delivery to ATAIU-SEA in India; RAF roundels were applied. Shipped from the Garapan 
		anchorage off Saipan, Mariana Islands to the USA 8Jul44 on USS Copahee (CVE-12), arriving NAS San Diego, 
		California, 28Jul44. Technical Air Intelligence Center (TAIC), NAS Anacostia, MD. Assigned TAIC 11. During 1945, 
		this Zero ground looped at NAS Atlanta, GA damaging the landing gear and was left resting on the lower 
		fuselage. Postwar, the aircraft was sold as scrap. Purchased as surplus by John Elliot, Sr. 
		Later, his son, John H. Elliot, Jr. acquired it and displayed it at JH Elliot Antiques along with the pilot's 
		seat, a 7.7mm machine gun and a 20mm cannon that were supposed from this same Zero. It was displayed until at 
		least the middle 1980s. During 1991-1992, this Zero was purchased by R. D. Whittington / World Jet Inc. 
		During 1993, it was transported to Fort Lauderdale, FL and stored in their hanger with the tail section removed. 
		Originally, Whittington intended to restore the Zero, but found the Zero had been previously cut into 
		pieces and spliced back together with screws and galvanized tin sheets. The interior was held together 
		with pieces of welded iron re-bar. The main spar was crystallized. The Sakae engine could be restored. 
		Missing was the tail cone, landing gear legs and all instruments. During 2001, it was sold to 
		Paul Allen / Flying Heritage Collection. Registered 27Aug01 as N1303 to Vulcan Warbirds, Inc. Today the 
		Zero is in storage at Flying Heritage Collection in Arlington, WA. The museum plans to restore it to fly. 
		Presently, it is unrestored and not on public display.

TAIU-SWPA

TAIU-SWPA was originally formed as ATAIU in November 1942 as a joint venture by the United States Navy (USN), the United 
States Army Air Forces (USAAF), the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) and the British Royal Navy at Hangar 7 of Eagle Farm 
airbase, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Aircraft tested at Hangar 7 of Eagle Farm carried a 'XJ' code [for Experimental Japanese].
Known used codes are XJ001 till XJ005, preceding those used later in the Philippines. In mid-1944, the US Navy personnel 
were withdrawn from the TAIU and reassigned to Naval Air Station Anacostia, Washington, DC, to form the Technical Air 
Intelligence Center (TAIC) to centralise and co-ordinate the work of test centers in the United States with the 
work of TAIUs in the field. The original unit was then renamed TAIU for the South West Pacific Area (TAIU-SWPA). 
By the time of the invasion of the Philippines, Technical Air Intelligence operations in the South-West Pacific Area 
were fully developed. Considerable instructions were given to the troops in the field on the equipment likely to 
be found and the importance of its preservation.
 
XJ001		Mitsubishi A6M3 Model 32 Zero-Sen (Allied code name 'Hamp')
		(MSN 3030)	The main airframe chosen for this hybrid was MSN 3030, tail code Q-102 of the 582nd K?k?tai, 
		whose main fuselage and wing sections were selected as being the most intact to repair as a flyable A6M3 Hamp 
		hybrid. The plane was built by Mitsubishi June 30, 1942. Delivered to the Imperial Japanese Navy Air 
		Force (IJNAF) as A6M3 Model 32 Zero. Assigned Houkoku Number 872 (presentation number) on the left side of 
		the fuselage, indicating the aircraft was donated by a civilian volunteer group in Japan [Katayoshi-GO]. 
		Assigned to the 2nd Kaigun K?k?tai; tail code Q-102. On August 26, 1942 Zero took off from Buna airfield 
		to defend the area against fourteen P-400 Airacobras from the 35th Fighter Group escorting seven B-26 Marauders 
		from the 19th Bombardment Squadron on a bombing mission against the airfield. A dogfight unfolded above 
		the airfield when this Zero was damaged by gunfire from the Airacobras but managed to land safely 
		back at Buna Airfield. The rear fuselage and other components came from MSN 3032. The plane was built 
		by Mitsubishi July 3, 1942. Assigned Houkoku Number 874 on the left side of the fuselage, donated by 
		civilian volunteer group Sadahei. Assigned to the Tainan Kaigun K?k?tai; tail code V-190. Other parts 
		including the engine came from MSN 3028, tail code V-187 of the Tainan Air Group (Tainan Kaigun K?k?tai). 
		The three aircraft had been captured by US troops December 27, 1942 at Buna, New Guinea. They were 
		loaded aboard a barge and shipped to Brisbane and then transported to Hangar 7 at Eagle Farm Airfield, 
		Brisbane, QLD February 1943. Tested by ATAIU; the first test flight was on July 20, 1943. Shipped to the 
		USA on the USS Copahee (CVE-12). Evaluation Branch, Technical Data Laboratory, Technical Service Command, 
		Wright Field, Dayton, OH 1Nov43. Renumbered as EB-201.
XJ002		Nakajima Ki-43-I- K? Hayabusa (Allied code name Oscar)
		Assigned to the 11th Sentai. During 1943, the aircraft operated from Lae Airfield, New Guinea. It was abandoned 
		largely intact, but with the tail rudder and fabric surfaces damaged and the cockpit canopy glass missing. 
		In Japanese service painted with green upper surfaces with the fuselage Hinomaru outlined in white. The 
		rear had a white vertical stripe rear aft of the Hinomaru. The leading edge of the wing had a yellow 
		recognition stripe. The tail had the lightning bolt motif of the 11th Sentai. During September 1943 Lae 
		was captured by the Australian Army and the area was occupied by the Allies whereupon the aircraft was found. 
		Afterwards, it aircraft was disassembled and shipped to Brisbane and transported to Hangar 7 at Eagle Farm Airfield, 
		arriving November 4, 1943 where the aircraft was reassembled and restored to flying condition by the then 
		Air Technical Intelligence Unit (ATIU), using parts of various airframes [Ki-43 MSN 400, Ki-43 MSN 426, 
		Ki-43 MSN 622, Ki-43 MSN 779 and Ki-43 MSN 805]. When ready, it was flown and tested as XJ002 at Eagle 
		Farm Airbase, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. After restoration, the aircraft was painted green with US 
		markings and tail code XJ002 in black on both sides of the tail. Later the aircraft was repainted in Japanese 
		markings for recognition manual purposes. On March 17, 1944 this aircraft was test flown by a USAAF test 
		pilot for 25 minutes. On March 18, 1944 it was test flown for 55 minutes; afterwards, the fate of this Oscar is unknown.
XJ003		Kawasaki Ki-61-I K? Hien (Allied code name Tony)
		(MSN 263)	Built by Kawasaki at their Kagamigahara factory during April 1943 as a Ki-61-I K?. Armed with the 
		standard "K?" weapon configuration of two fuselage mounted 12.7mm Ho-103 machine cannon and two 7.7 mm Type 
		89 machine-guns in the wings. Assigned to the 68th Sentai, 2nd Chutai, the aircraft was subsequently 
		abandoned intact at the airfield where it was discovered by US forces at Tuluvu airfield, Cape Gloucester, 
		New Guinea on 26Dec43. It was stripped of exterior paint and markings in May44, allocated test serial 
		number XJ003, repainted with a set of Star and Bars insignia, and test flown at Hangar 7 at Eagle Farm, 
		Brisbane, QLD, Australia after which the engine was rebuilt. The following month, the US TAIU contingent 
		were ordered back to Naval Air Station Anacostia, Washington DC, to form what would become TAIC. By July 
		the aircraft was among the aircraft, equipment, documentation and personnel aboard a 'Victory Ship' heading 
		for San Francisco, from where the whole establishment was taken by train to its new 'Hangar 151' facility 
		at Washington. Upon arrival it was again scheduled for repair, by which time it had been renumbered as TAIC 9.
XJ004		Nakajima Ki-43-II- K? Hayabusa (Allied code name Oscar)
		(MSN 5388)	Assigned to the 59th Sentai. Painted with green upper surfaces. The tail had the motif of the 
		59th Sentai, a diagonal line in Chutai color. After the fall of Hollandia, New Guinea the aircraft was 
		abandoned in the trees near the Cyclops runway there. The 8th Fighter Squadron, 49th Fighter Group was 
		stationed in Hollandia between May 3 and June 22, 1944. It chose to restore the aircraft in their spare time. 
		Fortunately for the group there was a veritable Japanese spare parts store in the form of other wrecks 
		that were strewn throughout the field and surrounding jungle. During the rebuilding the aircraft received 
		new control surfaces, a rebuilt engine and had its landing gear completely reconstructed. Even the 
		set of 12.7 mm guns was rebuilt and put into the Oscar before its reconstruction was complete. The 8th FS 
		also had help from Air Technical Intelligence on their build when on June 10th a group from the Air 
		Technical Intelligence Center in Brisbane arrived to complete the aircraft after already having given the 
		aircraft its XJ004 code on first inspection late April. The aircraft was stripped to bare metal and the 
		tail code XJ004 was painted in black on both sides of the tail. Later, this code was over painted with 
		pre-war red, white and blue markings. Oversized stars and bars were painted on the fuselage and wings. 
		The finishing touch was the name "Raccoon Special!"; "Raccoon Special" was the call sign of the 8th Fighter 
		Squadron, the Blacksheep. The aircraft was not yet ready when the 8th FS was given orders to move forward 
		to the Philippines and leave their Oscar behind. The squadron was disappointed by this development and 
		appealed to Brigadier General Donald Hutchinson, who was so moved by the group’s presentation that he 
		ordered that 8th FS would finish the build. When the unit left Hollandia, the aircraft was left 
		behind with its crew chief. On June 21, 1944 after successful preflight tests the Oscar once again 
		took flight. The flight was joined by a silver P-40 piloted by the Group Operations Officer. The pilots 
		put on a mock combat to put the Oscar through its paces. The unit found that the Oscar rolled, 
		turned sharply, and split esses to get on the P-40’s tail repeatedly. The aircraft was flown on at least 
		one more occasion by a pilot of the 7th Squadron and also flew a second mock combat against a group P-40 
		with the same result. The aircraft was transferred to Eagle Field, near Brisbane, QLD, Australia for 
		further testing. Shipped to the USA. NAS Alameda, California. The ultimate fate of this airframe is unknown.
XJ005		Nakajima Ki-43-II- K? Hayabusa (Allied code name Oscar)
		Assigned to an unknown Sentai (perhaps the 77th), operating from one of the Hollandia airfields in New Guinea. 
		During late April 1944, this Ki-43-II 'Oscar' was captured by the US Army in the Hollandia area at one of the 
		four dromes. Afterwards, having been inspected by the Air Technical Intelligence Unit (TAIU-SWPA), it was 
		assigned the tail code XJ005. Between June and September 1944 the aircraft was repaired by American personnel 
		from the 41st Troop Carrier Squadron, 317th Troop Carrier Group, 5th Air Force during their free time. 
		During the restoration the aircraft was paint-stripped to a bare aluminum finish. On the fuselage and wings 
		the US star-and-bar markings were applied. On both sides of the nose, below the cockpit and running to the 
		engine cowl, was a lightning-like stripe with "Rebuilt by the 41st Troop Carrier Sq." written in cursive, 
		with the squadron's motif of Felix the Cat carrying a kitten. The tail code XJ005 was painted in black on 
		both sides of the tail. The tail rudder was painted with pre-war-like red and white stripes. Both main wheel 
		hubs of the landing gear had the 5th Air Force emblem. On the 16th of November 1944, when the 41st Troop 
		Carrier Squadron moved northwards, this Oscar was left behind at Hollandia Airfield. Sometime after the 
		departure of the 41st Troop Carrier Squadron, XJ005 suffered a landing gear collapse damaging the aircraft. 
		Afterwards, it was towed to an aircraft scrap yard area and abandoned there. 



TAIU-SWPA

After the liberation of the Philippines, in early 1945, the Technical Air Intelligence Unit-South West Pacific Area 
(TAIU-SWPA) was moved from Australia to Clark Field, Manila in the Philippines and there it gained an appreciation 
of the state of the enemy's technological and economic development, essential to the build-up for the planned invasion of Japan.

S7		Kawanishi N1K2-J Shiden (Allied code name ‘George’)
		(MSN 5511)	Built by Kawanishi at their Naruo plant 12-18Nov44. Assigned to the 201st K?k?tai, with tail code 
		201-53 painted in yellow. Stationed at Clark Field, Manila, Philippines or maybe at Mabalacat East, where the 
		201st was stationed. Captured at Clark Field on 30Jan45. TAIU-SWPA at Clark Field. Damaged beyond repair at 
		Clark Field after its first flight when the landing gear collapsed 1945.
S9		Kawanishi N1K2-J Shiden (Allied code name ‘George’)
		(MSN 7102)	Built by Kawanishi at their Himeji factory sometime between 13Aug44 and 16Oct44. Assigned to the 
		341st Kokutai, 402nd Hikotai (Fighter Flying Unit), with tail code 341-S23. The aircraft was captured on 
		January 30, 1945 at Clark Field, Luzon, Philippines, repaired and applied with US markings and tail stripes. 
		Evaluated by TAIU-SWPA at Clark Field, Philippines, during April 1945 with the under wing and fuselage mounted 
		guns removed, to resemble the N1K2-J configuration. The fate of the aircraft is unknown.
S10		Nakajima Ki-84-I Hayate (Allied code name ‘Frank')
		(MSN 1066)	Abandoned at Clark Field, Manila, Philippines and captured intact by the US Army. Repaired and repainted 
		in American markings. Evaluated by TAIU-SWPA at Clark Field, Philippines during June 1945, this aircraft 
		was probably flown twice by TAIU-SWPA before crash landing after engine failure on a test flight. Afterwards, 
		it was possibly used for spare parts.
S11		Nakajima Ki-44-1a Shoki (Allied code name 'Tojo')
		(MSN 2068)	Manufactured Jul44. Originally operated by the Akeno Ky?d? Hik?shidan (the Akeno Army Air Training School) 
		with tail code 2068, this aircraft was found on Clark Field, Luzon, Philippines March 1945. It was repaired 
		and evaluated by TAIU-SWPA at Clark Field until a crash in June 1945.
S12		Mitsubishi J2M3 Raiden (Allied code name 'Jack') 
		(MSN 3008)	The aircraft was attached to the 201st Kokutai and used to help defend the area of Manila. This 
		particular aircraft had previously been attached to the 381st Kokutai S-602 Hikotai with the previous unit 
		code being over painted. According to one intelligence report that previous code was 81-124, but it carried 
		none when captured. It was found in February 1945 on Dewey Boulevard, Manila (now Roxas Boulevard) in the 
		Philippines, which had been used as an emergency airstrip by the Japanese. The Raiden was moved to Clark Field, 
		Philippines for evaluation by TAIU-SWPA. Stripped of paint and finished in US markings with pre-war tail stripes. 
		S12 made only two test flights of 3 hours 20 minutes duration, before an oil pipe failed causing the engine to 
		seize up and crash landed, and was later destroyed on the ground when a North American B-25 Mitchell bomber 
		collided with it.
S13		Mitsubishi J2M3 Raiden (Allied code name 'Jack') 
		(MSN 3013)	Attached to the 381 Kokutai. TAIU-SWPA. It may have been evaluated, post capture, at Nichols Field, 
		Manila in June 1945.
S14		Kawasaki Ki-45-Kai Hei (Allied code name 'Nick')
		(MSN 3303)	One of forty-five 'Nicks' captured at Clark Field, Manila. Evaluated by TAIU-SWPA at Clark Field, 
		Philippines, 1945. Foreign Equipment Branch, Technical Data Laboratory, Air Technical Service Command, 
		Wright Field, Dayton, OH. Assigned FE-325.
S15		Showa L2D3 (Allied code name 'Tabby')
		(MSN 6240)	The aircraft was captured on May 3, 1945 at Zamboanga Airfield (Wolf Field), Philippines missing its 
		left propeller. Repaired and flown back to Clark Field by TAIU-SWPA. Received the name "Tokyo Express", 
		painted with American markings and flight tested. Inspection and flight testing of this and other captured 
		L2D3, -4 and -5 aircraft showed that because of Japan’s use of plywood on fairings, tail cone, surface controls, 
		and doors, it out-performed the US version of the DC-3. The 30 part wood, part metal versions were all sent 
		to the scrap pile.
S16		Kugisho D4Y3 Suisei (Allied code name 'Judy')
		(MSN 3957)	Abandoned at Clark Field in the Philippines, tail code ‘57’, original unit unknown. Selected as the 
		best model from which to build a flying example for testing, because it was not badly damaged. Rebuilt over 
		several months by TAIU, it was stripped to bare metal. The aircraft was tested by TAIU-SWPA at Clark Field, 
		Philippines, during June 1945.  This aircraft may have been tested at NAS Anacostia, MD after the war.
S17		Nakajima Ki-84-I K? Hayate (Allied code name ‘Frank')
		(MSN 1446)	Assigned to the 2nd Chutai of the 11th Sentai, tail code '46' and served in the Philippines. 
		Captured at Clark Field during 1945. Evaluated and flight tested by TAIU-SWPA at Clark Field, Luzon, 
		Philippines, during June 1945. Transported 1945 to the United States aboard USS Long Island (CVE-1).

		803rd Special Depot at Orchard Place Airport, Park Ridge, Illinois 22Jul46. Transferred to the Smithsonian 
		Institution. In September 1952 it was sold to Edward Maloney, owner of the Ontario Air Museum 
		(Planes of Fame Museum) and restored to flying condition 1954. Part of the collection of the Planes of 
		Fame Museum during 1952-1973. Appeared in the movie 'Never So Few' in 1954. Made airworthy again June 1963, 
		registered as N3385G; cancelled 30Apr11. Sold to Ed Lykins, who sold it to the Japanese 1973. 
		Transported to Japan, it was exhibited on loan to Fuji Industries then displayed 1982 at Arashiyama Museum 
		near Kyoto until 1989, when that museum closed. Since 1997 it has been exhibited at the 
		Tokk?-Heiwa-Kaikan / Chiran Peace Museum commemorating the Japanese army pilots who died in WWII.
S18		Nakajima Ki-44-II Hei Shoki (Allied code name 'Tojo')
		(MSN 2143)	The aircraft had brown-green upper surfaces, light grey-green undersides and the Japanese symbol ? 
		('Mo') on the starboard rudder only. The aircraft showed signs of serious weathering, as it saw previous 
		action over China and Formosa before the unit was transferred to the Philippines in November 1944. It is 
		not known whether the aircraft was ever restored to flying condition by TAIU-SWPA. 
		[Previously MSN 2143 and MSN 2068 (S11) have been mixed-up in research, photographs of what turned out to 
		be MSN 2143 were identified as being of MSN 2068.]
S19		Nakajima B6N2 (Allied code name 'Jill')
		Delivered to the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Force (IJNAF). Assigned to 701th Kokutai, 252nd Hikotai with 
		tail code 01-35. Painted with green upper and gray lower. The aircraft was found in damaged condition at 
		Clark Field, Manila, Philippines when it was captured by the US Army at the end of January 1945. 
		Technical Air Intelligence Unit for the South-West Pacific Area (TAIU-SWPA) for technical evaluation. 
		This Jill was repaired, using components from MSN 3779 and MSN 6745, over several months for evaluation at 
		Clark Field. Ultimate fate unknown.
S22		Kawasaki Ki-45-Kai Hei (Allied code name 'Nick')
		(MSN 3303)	Evaluated by TAIU-SWPA at Clark Field, Philippines, 1945, it differed from the more well-known Ki-45 S14 
		by having two upward firing cannon behind the pilot seat. As S22 was seen being transported to the USA, 
		it is likely to be one of the two Ki-45 that was later tested in the USA (FE-325 or FE-701), as both had the 
		upward firing cannon too. As the sole remaining Ki-45 airframe, that of FE-701, is not known to have been at 
		Clark Field FE-325 is the most likely candidate.

		Kawasaki Ki-45-Kai Hei (Allied code name 'Nick')
		Captured on the island of Palawan, western Philippines. Noted in USAAF markings having nosed over.

		Mitsubishi G4M2 'Rikko' (Allied code name 'Betty')
		(MSN 2134)	Built by Mitsubishi at Nagoya No. 3 Works. Delivered to the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Force (IJNAF) 
		and assigned to the 702nd Hik?tai of the 763rd K?k?tai. The tail code 763-12 was painted in white on both sides 
		of the tail. It was painted with green upper surfaces and gray lower surfaces and equipped with Yagi antennas 
		for aerial radar in both nose and fuselage. The 702nd Hik?tai of the 763rd K?k?tai operated from Clark Field 
		on Luzon, Philippines. During late January 1945, this Betty was captured there relatively intact by US soldiers. 
		Evaluated by TAIU-SWPA at Clark Field, Philippines. During the reconstruction the green paint was stripped 
		from the fuselage to a natural aluminum finish, the tail was a painted with a blue vertical stripe and red and 
		white horizontal stripes on the rudder. Both propeller spinners were painted red and US star and bar markings 
		were painted on the fuselage and wings. Damaged when fell off the jacks during repair. Shipped to the USA. 
		Foreign Equipment Branch, Technical Data Laboratory, Air Technical Service Command, Wright Field, Dayton, OH.

		Nakajima Ki-43-II-Otsu Hayabusa (Allied code name ‘Oscar’)
		(MSN 5894)	Operated from Hollandia, New Guinea. During late Apr44, this Ki-43 was captured by the US Army in the 
		Hollandia. Afterwards, inspected by the Allied Technical Air Intelligence Unit TAIU-SWPA. During the middle of 1944, 
		this Ki-43 was repaired at Cyclops airfield by American personnel from the US Army Air Force 84th Airdrome Squadron. 
		Repaired using spare parts found in the area and parts from other Oscars. Suffered landing gear problems upon landing 
		after its maiden test flight. Believed to have been mounted on a pole at the entrance to Clark Field, Manila 
		for several years.

		Nakajima Ki-43-II-Otsu Hayabusa (Allied code name ‘Oscar’)
		(MSN 6430)	Built by Nakajima Hikoki K.K. Jan44. No known markings or tail code. Operated from Hollandia, New Guinea.
		During late Apr44, this Ki-43 was captured by the US Army in the Hollandia. Afterwards, inspected by the Allied 
		Technical Air Intelligence Unit TAIU-SWPA. During the middle of 1944, this Ki-43 (also known as Hollandia Oscar #2) 
		and Ki-43-II Oscar MSN 5894 were repaired at Cyclops airfield by American personnel from the US Army Air Force 
		84th Airdrome Squadron. Both Oscars were repaired using spare parts found in the area and parts from other Oscars. 
		This Oscar was stripped to bare aluminum finish and painted with US star-and-bar markings and a red and white tail 
		rudder. The cowl had a circular motif with "84" for the 84th Airdrome Squadron painted on both sides. 
		This Oscar received a modified flat sided movable canopy similar to that fitted to the Ki-43-I. Presumably the 
		canopy was obtained from a model 1 and modified to fit the front fixed section of the Ki-43-II canopy. By Sep44, 
		this Oscar was test flown in the Hollandia area. Later, this Oscar was loaded aboard the escort carrier USS Attu 
		and transported to the United States for technical evaluation. Received by TAIC, it was designated "10" stenciled 
		on the tail with "Technical Air Intelligence Center" on the right side of the cockpit and "Oscar 2" on the 
		right side of the nose cowling. The plane was identified by the Wright Field technical intelligence unit as 
		FE-6430 (later T2-6430), but they thought the number not to be the original Japanese manufacture number as 
		they were confused about the various parts with different manufacture numbers. The pilot seat of MSN 6430 
		appeared to be that of MSN 5894, the 'other' Oscar (Hollandia Oscar #1), that had suffered landing gear 
		problems upon landing after its maiden test flight.

		Tachikawa Ki-54c transport aircraft (Allied code name 'Hickory’)
		Evaluated by TAIU-SWPA at Clark Field, Philippines. Named ‘Lemon’. Shipped to the USA. Foreign Equipment Branch, 
		Technical Data Laboratory, Air Technical Service Command, Wright Field, Dayton, OH.




Technical Air Intelligence Center (TAIC) 

The Technical Air Intelligence Center was an evaluation unit formed in mid-1944, comprising US Navy personnel withdrawn 
from the TAIU and reassigned to NAS Anacostia, Washington, DC, to centralise and co-ordinate the work of test centers 
in the United States with the work of TAIUs in the field. By the end of 1945 the TAIU’s had completed their search 
of Japan and other territories and gathered together the examples at Yokohama Naval Base. 

Approximately 115 aircraft were shipped to America by the end of December 1945. But of the 
115 aircraft recovered after the war, plus the eleven (?) previously acquired during the war, only 46 were eventually 
sent to museums. The final fate of most was to be scrapped.

TAIC 1	Mitsubishi A6M2 Zero
		(MSN 4593)	Built by Mitsubishi 19Feb42 at their Nagoya plant. Delivered to the Imperial Japanese Navy Air 
		Force (IJNAF) and assigned to the light aircraft carrier Ry?j? with tail code D1-108. The aircraft took off 
		from the Ry?j? on its first operational mission over Dutch Harbor, Amaknak Island, Unalaska, Alaska as 
		part of a diversionary raid prior to the Battle of Midway 3Jun42. At Dutch Harbor it was hit by ground fire 
		puncturing the fuel supply and had to make a forced landing on Akutan Island. The Zero flipped over in the soft 
		marsh, killing the pilot on impact. The wreck was spotted on 10Jul42 by a Consolidated PBY Catalina. A US Navy 
		team visited the crash on 11Jul42 and found the Zero upside down and damaged, but still repairable. It was 
		carefully lifted and transported aboard a barge to Dutch Harbor and then to NAS North Island near San Diego, CA, 
		arriving there 12Aug42. It was repaired and ready for its first flight 26Sep42. The Zero was tested in the 
		San Diego area under control of the Test Section, NAS Anacostia, MD. During the tests the Zero was 
		flown against various American fighters, including a Lockheed P-38F Lightning, a Bell P-39D-1 Airacobra, 
		a Curtiss P-40F Warhawk, a North American P-51 Mustang and a Vought F4U-1 Corsair. Ferried to Test Section, 
		NAS Anacostia, MD. Damaged in a landing accident at Greenville, NC 5Jan43. Technical Air Intelligence 
		Center (TAIC), NAS Anacostia, MD 1944. Assigned TAIC 1. Ferried from NAS Anacostia to NAS Patuxent River, MD 
		23Aug44 but force landed after engine failure at Andrews Field, MD; continued to NAS Patuxent River 24Aug44. 
		NAS North Island, San Diego, CA by 14Sep44. The Zero was destroyed in a training accident in Feb45 when 
		a taxying Curtiss SB2C Helldiver crashed into it. From the wreckage a wing tip and some instruments were 
		salvaged which were donated to the Navy Museum, Washington Navy Yard, DC. The Alaska Heritage Museum and 
		the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum also have small pieces of the Zero.
TAIC 2	Untraced.
TAIC 3	Untraced.
TAIC 4	Untraced.
		The untraced TAIC numbers are believed to include the following aircraft:
		1x Aichi E13A reconnaissance seaplane (Allied code name ‘Jake’). 
		May have been MSN 3167 found in wrecked condition at Chichagof Harbor, Attu, Aleutian Islands Jun43.
		1x Nakajima A6M2-N fighter floatplane (Allied code name ‘Rufe’)
		1x Focke-Wulf Fw 190
TAIC 5	Mitsubishi A6M5 Model 52 Zero
		(MSN 5357) Built by Nakajima Hikoki KK May43. It was assigned to the Japanese Naval Air Corps on the home island of 
		Honshu. In a few months, it moved to Iwo Jima, and then in March 1944, was reassigned to Asilito, Saipan. 
		261st K?k?tai, with tail code 61-120. On 18Jun44 it was captured, together with other Japanese aircraft, 
		by US Marines at Aslito Field, Saipan. Shipped from the Garapan anchorage off Saipan, Mariana Islands to the 
		USA 8Jul44 on USS Copahee (CVE-12), arriving NAS San Diego, California, 28Jul44. Technical Air Intelligence 
		Center (TAIC), NAS Anacostia, MD. Assigned TAIC 5. First flight at San Diego 5Aug44. Ferried to NAS Anacostia 
		22Aug44. Tactical Test Division, NAS Patuxent River, MD 23Aug44 for evaluation. One of the pilots to fly it 
		was Charles Lindbergh. The aircraft was ferried back to NAS Anacostia 30Nov44. Returned to NAS North Island, 
		San Diego on 6Dec44, where frontline combat pilots were also given a chance to check out the Zero. 
		Altogether the Zero logged over 190 hours of flight time in the USA by Sep45. Flown to NAS Alameda, 
		CA 30Sep45. Declared surplus. The aircraft was sold to Edward T. Maloney who at first had no room to 
		exhibit the aircraft, so it was put into storage. On 12Jan57 Maloney opened his "The Air Museum" in 
		Claremont, California where he displayed the Zero with code V-101 and later its own original 61-120. 
		In 1965 the Air Museum moved to Ontario Airport, Ontario, California. In 1970 redevelopment of the 
		airport at Ontario forced The Air Museum to move again. The non-flyable aircraft became part of the "Movie World:
		Cars of the Stars and Planes of Fame Museum" in Buena Park, California, near Knott's Berry Farm. 
		In 1978 the Zero was made airworthy again, using an original Nakajima Sakae engine, registered 3May78 as N46770. 
		After that the aircraft made a six month journey, from Jul78 till early 1979, to Japan, making it the first 
		A6M Zero to fly over Japanese soil since WW2. Back in the USA it was damaged during a landing at Chino, CA 
		on 25Jun82, but was repaired. Another tour in and over Japan followed in 1995 and it also appeared in 
		the movie "Pearl Harbor". The aircraft left Chino 30Oct12 for yet another visit to Japan for displays, 
		returning to Chino in Nov13.
TAIC 6	Nakajima B5N2 (Kate)
		(MSN 2194)	This B5N2 Type 97 Carrier Attack Bomber was built in December 1943. Equipped with H-6 ASV radar, 
		the 'Kate' had been attached to the General (Combined) Escort Force or Rengo Goei Butai (GEB), serving 
		there with the 931st Kaigun K?k?tai. After the capture of Saipan in June 1944 this B5N2 Kate, with the 
		tail-code KEB306, was found abandoned at Aslito airfield. Shipped from the Garapan anchorage off Saipan, 
		Mariana Islands to the USA 8Jul44 on USS Copahee (CVE-12), arriving NAS San Diego, California, 28Jul44. 
		Technical Air Intelligence Center (TAIC), NAS Anacostia, MD. Assigned TAIC 1. First flight after 
		overhaul 16Nov44. Initially used to evaluate the effectiveness of the radar equipment against US naval 
		vessels off the Delaware coast, with the equipment being operated by the Naval Radio Laboratory. 
		Tactical Test Division, NAS Patuxent River, MD 13Dec44. Technical Air Intelligence Center (TAIC), 
		NAS Anacostia, MD 27Apr45. In Oct45 the Kate and a Zeke were attached to a group known as 
		‘The Navy’s Flying Might’ at NAS Wildwood, Rio Grande, NJ, set up as a travelling display to take part 
		in nationwide Victory Loan promotions across the USA. Believed to have been on static display at 
		the World's Fair of Aviation, Offutt Field, Fort Crook, Omaha, NB July 1946.
TAIC 7	Mitsubishi A6M5 Model 52 Zero
		(MSN 4340)	Built by Mitsubishi December 1943. Assigned to the 261st Kokutai with tail code 61-???. 
		Likely, the tail code was 61-106, though 61-108 has been quoted as well. However, that code has also 
		been cited for another airframe (that of A6M5 MSN 2193 'TAIC 8'). During June 1944 the aircraft, 
		without its right stabilizer, was captured at Aslito airfield on Saipan by US Marines. Shipped from the 
		Garapan anchorage off Saipan, Mariana Islands to the USA 8Jul44 on USS Copahee (CVE-12), arriving NAS San Diego, 
		California, 28Jul44. 
		Technical Air Intelligence Center (TAIC), NAS Anacostia, MD 1Sep44. Assigned TAIC 7. First flight at 
		NAS Anacostia 14Dec44. Next flown 21Dec44 then transferred to the USAAF. Evaluation Branch, Technical 
		Data Laboratory, Technical Service Command, Wright Field, Dayton, OH. Renumbered as FE-130.
TAIC 8	Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero (Zeke)
 		(MSN 2193)	Captured at Aslito airfield on Saipan by US Marines Mar44. Shipped from the Garapan anchorage 
		off Saipan, Mariana Islands to the USA 8Jul44 on USS Copahee (CVE-12), arriving NAS San Diego, California, 
		28Jul44. Technical Air Intelligence Center (TAIC), NAS Anacostia, MD. Assigned TAIC 8. Operated by TAIC 
		based at Ontario Field, CA in late 1944. 412th Fighter Group, Fourth Air Force, Bakersfield MAP, CA. 
		Evaluation Branch, Technical Data Laboratory, Technical Service Command, Wright Field, Dayton, OH. 
		Army Proving Grounds, Eglin Field, Florida late 1945. It now seems that MSN 2193 should be MSN 1293 
		and that the original tail code was 8-24, most likely for the Sentoki Dai Hachi Hikotai.
TAIC 9	Kawasaki Ki-61 Hien (Tony)
		(MSN 263)	Previously XJ003. By Jul44 the aircraft was among the aircraft, equipment, documentation and 
		personnel aboard a 'Victory Ship' heading for San Francisco, from where the whole establishment was taken by 
		train to its new 'Hangar 151' facility at NAS Anacostia, MD. Technical Air Intelligence Center (TAIC), 
		NAS Anacostia, MD. Assigned TAIC 9. During Jan45 it was painted back in pseudo-Japanese markings. 
		Tactical Test Division, NAS Patuxent River, MD Jun45. Evaluated against the Wildcat, Corsair, Hellcat, 
		Tigercat and Bearcat, but the tests were suspended when bearing metal was found in the engine oil. 
		During a ferry flight from NAS Patuxent River to the Army Proving Grounds, Eglin Field, Florida 2Jul45, 
		the engine failed and the aircraft was written off in the forced landing at Yanceyville, North Carolina.
TAIC 10	Mitsubishi Ki-46-II Type 100 (Allied code name ‘Dinah’) command reconnaissance aircraft
 		(MSN 2846)	Assigned to the 10th Reconnaissance Sentai of the Japanese Army Air Force. No known markings or 
		tail code. Operated from Hollandia, New Guinea. Abandoned largely intact at one of the Hollandia area 
		airfields. On 23Apr44 this aircraft was captured by US Army troops when they liberated the Hollandia area. 
		During Sep44, this Dinah was repaired by ground crews from the 89th Attack Squadron, 3rd Attack Group, 
		Fifth Air Force, to airworthy status. It was repainted with US star-and-bar markings and with a red and 
		white stripped rudder, bordered at the tail in blue. On the nose at first the squadron emblem of the 
		89th Attack Squadron was applied and later replaced with the group emblem of the 3rd Attack Group, 
		the "Grim Reaper". During Jan45, the aircraft was shipped to the United States aboard USS Attu. 
		Technical Air Intelligence Center (TAIC), NAS Anacostia, MD. Assigned TAIC 10. Tactical Test Division, 
		NAS Patuxent River, MD. Army Proving Grounds, Eglin Field, Florida. Last mentioned on 29May45 when it had a 
		taxying accident at Eglin Field. Fate unknown, likely scrapped.
TAIC 11	Mitsubishi A6M5 Model 52
		(MSN 1303)	Built by Nakajima Hikoki K.K. Assigned to the 261 K?k?tai, tail code 61-121. In Mar44, this 
		Zero operated from Aslito airfield on Saipan. During Jun44, this Zero was captured by US Marines intact 
		at Aslito field. It was scheduled for delivery to ATAIU-SEA in India; RAF roundels were applied. 
		Shipped from the Garapan anchorage off Saipan, Mariana Islands to the USA 8Jul44 on USS Copahee (CVE-12), 
		arriving NAS San Diego, California, 28Jul44. Technical Air Intelligence Center (TAIC), NAS Anacostia, MD. 
		Assigned TAIC 11. During 1945, this Zero ground looped at NAS Atlanta, GA damaging the landing gear and 
		was left resting on the lower fuselage. Postwar, the aircraft was sold as scrap. Purchased as surplus by 
		John Elliot, Sr. Later, his son, John H. Elliot, Jr. acquired it and displayed it at JH Elliot Antiques 
		along with the pilot's seat, a 7.7mm machine gun and a 20mm cannon that were supposed from this same Zero. 
		It was displayed until at least the middle 1980s. During 1991-1992, this Zero was purchased by 
		R. D. Whittington / World Jet Inc. During 1993, it was transported to Fort Lauderdale, FL and stored in 
		their hanger with the tail section removed. Originally, Whittington intended to restore the Zero, 
		but found the Zero had been previously cut into pieces and spliced back together with screws and galvanized 
		tin sheets. The interior was held together with pieces of welded iron re-bar. The main spar was crystallized. 
		The Sakae engine could be restored. Missing was the tail cone, landing gear legs and all instruments. 
		During 2001, it was sold to Paul Allen / Flying Heritage Collection. Registered 27Aug01 as N1303 to 
		Vulcan Warbirds, Inc. Today the Zero is in storage at Flying Heritage Collection in Arlington, WA. 
		The museum plans to restore it to fly. Presently, it is unrestored and not on public display.

		Focke-Wulf Fw 190G-3
		(Werk Nr 160057)	Captured at Gerbini, Catania, Sicily Aug43 and made airworthy by ground crew of the 
		85th Fighter Squadron, 79th Fighter Group, Twelfth Air Force. To avoid any possibility of the aircraft 
		being taken to be the enemy, the aircraft was painted in a striking white scheme with red spinner, cowling, 
		fuselage band and striped tail. Flown from Foggia ? 3/Salsola to Bari, Italy for shipment to the USA 20Nov44. 
		Later the aircraft was repainted in a standard USN three-tone non-specular, intermediate blue and insignia 
		white scheme. Technical Air Intelligence Center (TAIC), NAS Anacostia, MD. Reassembled and test flown 22Feb44. 
		Flown to NAS Patuxent River, MD 25Feb45. Tactical Test Division, NAS Patuxent River, MD for evaluation.

		Mitsubishi A6M5 model 52
		(MSN 4361)	Built by Nakajima Hikoki K.K. Assigned to the 261 K?k?tai, tail code 61-131. In Mar44, this Zero 
		operated from Aslito airfield on Saipan. Captured intact by the US Army 27th Infantry Division during the 
		night of 16-17Jun44. Shipped from the Garapan anchorage off Saipan, Mariana Islands to the USA 8Jul44 on 
		USS Copahee (CVE-12), arriving NAS San Diego, California, 28Jul44. Technical Air Intelligence Center (TAIC), 
		NAS Anacostia, MD. Damaged beyond repair when ground looped at El Paso, TX en route to NAS Anacostia, MD 10Aug44.




Evaluation Branch, Technical Data Laboratory

Evaluation Branch, Technical Data Laboratory, Technical Service Command, Wright Field, Dayton, OH.
Aircraft were assigned an "EB" (Evaluation Branch) prefix number, at first starting with EB-1 and EB-2 and 
later a system that allowed more distinction, German aircraft given a number in the 100-sequence, Japanese aircraft 
a number in the 200-sequence and Italian a number in the 300-sequence. The EB-code system was superceded by the 
FE-code system [for Foreign Equipment]. Aircraft which were still extant when the Air Materiel Command came into 
existence were renumbered as T2-xxx, T-2 being the Technical Intelligence Group designation.

USA Numbers

USA numbers were allocated by Royal Air Force Intelligence teams to aircraft located in Northern Germany and Denmark which were 
listed as being of interest by US Intelligence. Details were then forwarded to Colonel Harold Watson and, if required by the 
Americans, the aircraft were handed over to the USAAF.

USA 11	Focke-Wulf Ta 152H-0
		(Werk Nr 150010) The NASM plane, the last Ta 152 in existence, is a pre-production Ta 152H-0 model. For many years 
		it was described (wrongly) as Werk Nr 150003. It is now thought to be Werk Nr.150010. This places the 
		airframe in the range of pre-production H-0 models, a variant marking the transition from the Ta 152 prototypes 
		to full production Ta 152H-1 airplanes. It was probably built at Focke-Wulf's production facility at Cottbus, Germany, 
		in December 1944, and delivered by Erprobungskommando Ta 152 at Rechlin, Germany, for service testing with 
		the Geschwaderkennung CW+CJ. Transferred to the operational Luftwaffe unit JG 301 where it became ‘Yellow 4’ 
		with II/JG 301 and the Yellow/Red RGV bands were painted on its aft fuselage. It ended up with the staff 
		flight (Geschwader Stab) of JG 301 where it was coded ‘Green 4’, and the green bar was painted over the RGV 
		bands. It was flown operationally by Ofw Walter Loos in 1945. As the Soviets rolled over eastern Germany, 
		many Luftwaffe pilots took off and steered their mounts west; they preferred to be captured by the West. 
		Surrendered to British forces at Tirstrup, Denmark. Flown by the RAF to Aalborg, Denmark, for servicing.

		On 8May45, a Luftwaffe pilot landed the plane at Munich-Riem Airport, which was in the hands of US troops. 
		The pilot surrendered himself, the plane, and 80 women of the Luftwaffe auxiliary. All had flown to Munich 
		from Czechoslovakia, eager to be captured by the Americans rather than the Soviets. With help from the German 
		pilot, Col Watson flew the Ju 290 to an airfield near Nuremberg on 10May45. Ferried from Le Culot (A-89), 
		Beauvechain, Belgium to Orly Field, Paris, France 19Jul45. The aircraft was named ‘Alles Kaputt’ 
		(everything’s lost) on the nose and the German insignia had been replaced with US markings. Col Watson 
		departed Orly Field, Paris, France, on 28Jul45 to fly the Ju 290 to the United States. At their first 
		stop during the flight, Santa Maria Island in the Azores, Watson had a chance to show the Ju 290 to Army 
		Air Forces boss General Henry “Hap” Arnold, who happened to be passing through returning from the Potsdam 
		conference. The flight continued to Bermuda, and proceeded directly to Patterson Field, Dayton, Ohio, 
		arriving 31Jul45. Foreign Equipment Branch, Technical Data Laboratory, Air Technical Service Command, 
		Wright Field, Dayton, OH. Assigned FE-3400.

(C-011)	Blohm+Voss BV 222C Wiking, transport flying-boat.
(C-013)	Blohm+Voss BV 222C Wiking, transport flying-boat.
		Captured by US forces at the end of the Second World War. On 15 August and again on 20 August 1945 the 
		US Navy performed test flights along with the Luftwaffe crew of one of the Bv 222 Wiking aircraft that 
		had been acquired by the US. In two flights resulting in a total flight time of 38 minutes they experienced 
		4 engine fires. While many spare engines were available they were of substandard quality due to the 
		lack of quality alloys near the end of the war, and caught fire easily. Since the aircraft was not 
		airworthy with these engines, the aircraft was supposedly taken out to open water and sunk by a Navy 
		Destroyer. Other reports indicate the US captured aircraft were flown or shipped to the USA. Convair 
		acquired one for evaluation at the Naval Air Station Patuxent River, the intensive studies leading 
		to the hull design of their Model 117 which in turn led to the R3Y Tradewind. Their subsequent fate is unknown. 

(V2)		Blohm+Voss BV 222V-2 Wiking, transport flying-boat.
		(Werk Nr 366)	Strangely the V2 aircraft had identification markings given to it from the original 
		V5 aircraft for Operation Schatzgräber. Surrendered to the Royal Air Force at Sorreisa, Norway. The 
		V2 aircraft was briefly flown by a US Navy crew and painted in US markings in 1946. V2 was later scuttled 
		by the British who filled it with Bv 222 Wiking spare parts from the base at Ilsvika to weigh it down. 
		V2 was towed to a position between Fagervika and Monk’s island where it is thought it now rests perfectly 
		preserved on the seabed, owing to low oxygen levels in the water. There are plans to raise and restore 
		this aircraft.




Watson's Whizzers

Throughout the war in Europe, the US Army Air Force (USAAF) Intelligence Service sent teams to Europe to gain access to 
enemy aircraft, technical and scientific reports, research facilities, and weapons for study in the US. The Air 
Technical Intelligence (ATI) teams trained at the Technical Intelligence School at Wright Field, Ohio, and then 
collected enemy equipment to learn about Germany’s technical developments. The ATI teams competed with 32 allied 
technical intelligence groups to gain information and equipment recovered from crash sites. As the war concluded, 
the various intelligence teams, including the ATI, shifted from tactical intelligence to post hostilities investigations. 
Exploitation intelligence increased dramatically. Captured Luftwaffe airfields rewarded the Allies with many 
aircraft that were technologically advanced and of great interest to intelligence agencies. In November 1944, 
General H.H. “Hap” Arnold directed that items of captured enemy equipment be collected methodically so technical 
experts could study the equipment. At Wright Field, the Technical Data Laboratory worked with the other laboratories 
to develop a “wish list” of German equipment they would like to have for technological study and exploitation. 
On 22 April 1945, the USAAF combined technical and post-hostilities intelligence objectives under the Exploitation 
Division with the aim of exploiting captured German scientific documents, research facilities, and aircraft. 
The code name of the operation was ‘Lusty’ (from Luftwaffe Secret Technology). Under the leadership of Colonel Harold Watson, 
they collected enemy aircraft and weapons for further examination in the US. Colonel  Watson and his crew were 
nicknamed “Watson’s Whizzers” because of the speed they flew whizzing around in the Me 262 jet aircraft. 
The team comprised of Ninth Air Force P-47 pilots and maintenance men. He organized his “Whizzers” into two sections, 
one collected jet aircraft and the other procured piston engine aircraft and non-flyable jet and rocket equipment. 
After the war, the “Whizzers” added a crew of 25 former Luftwaffe test pilots and mechanics to their team, 
including Hauptman Heinz Braun. Hauptman Braun had flown 70 women, children, and wounded troops to Munich-Riem 
airport on 8 May 1945. After he landed, Braun was approached by Watson who gave him the choice of either going to a 
prison camp or flying with the “Whizzers”; Braun decided flying would be more preferable. Three Messerschmitt 
employees also joined the “Whizzers,” with Karl Baur, the Chief Test Pilot of Experimental Aircraft; test pilot 
Ludwig “Willie” Huffman; and engineering superintendent, Gerhard Coulis. Test pilot Herman Kersting joined later.
The Me 262s were rebuilt by the 54th Air Disarmament Squadron and a couple initially had “Feudin 54th A.D. Sq” 
painted on the starboard side, painted over by the time of General Spaatz’s inspection at Melun 27Jun45. 
Initially named, the aircraft were given the 3-digit ‘Watson Whizzer’ number prior to the formal inspection at Melun.

		test pilot, Ludwig ‘Willie’ Hoffman]. Numbered by Watson's Whizzers as 555. Flown to Querqueville (A-23), 
		Cherbourg, France 6Jul45. The flight was uneventful until the landing approach was initiated. Upon 
		lowering the landing gear, the German pilot received indication of the main- gear extending but no 
		panel light that the nose gear was down. He activated the emergency gear-down switch, which was a 
		compressed air cylinder, but still did not receive a gear-down indication. The pilot had earlier 
		received a green light from the tower to land so he continued on the approach expecting a red light 
		if the nose gear was not fully extended. He thought the gear was extended and that the down-indicator 
		was unreliable. Inasmuch as he didn’t receive a red light from the tower he continued his approach, 
		and touched down normally on the main gear, holding the nose off the ground as long as possible. 
		After rolling approximately 1/3 the length of the runway, he slowly lowered the nose and found that the nose gear 
		had not extended. The aircraft slid for 800 to 1000 feet straight ahead on the nose section, 
		engine nacelles and main gear before stopping. Very little damage had been inflicted to the aircraft. 
		All that was required to make it flyable was to replace the nose section and the front portion of each 
		engine nacelle. The pilot took several mechanics and flew to Lechfeld, Germany in a C-47 where they 
		removed the needed components from another Me 262 . The damaged sections of the trainer were replaced 
		and the aircraft loaded on board the aircraft carrier. Operation Seahorse. Shipped to the USA on the

Technical Intelligence Group (T2)

General Hap Arnold ordered the preservation of four of every type of aircraft used by the enemy forces. One of each was to 
be for the USAAF, USN, RAF and Museum purposes. Enemy aircraft shipped to the USA for testing by the USAAF were 
assigned to the Foreign Equipment Branch, Technical Data Laboratory, Air Technical Service Command, Wright Field, Dayton, OH. 
With a shortage of space at Wright Field, Freeman Field was re-assigned as a subsidiary location where storage, 
maintenance and preparation took place before the aircraft were flown to Wright Field for testing. Aircraft were 
assigned an "FE" (Foreign Equipment) prefix number. Aircraft which were still extant when the Air Materiel Command 
came into existence were renumbered as T2-xxx, T-2 being the Technical Intelligence Group designation. Many aircraft 
did not carry their identity; others only carried the basic number. It seems that Japanese aircraft, mostly captured 
by US naval forces, assigned low numbers were also assigned with a ‘N’ prefix.
 
Aircraft set aside for a proposed national aviation museum were sent to Orchard Place Airport, Park Ridge, Illinois 
for storage; larger aircraft were flown to Davis-Monthan AFB, Tucson, AZ.

		Smithsonian Institution. Moved to the National Air Museum storage facility at Silver Hill, Maryland 1950. 
		In 1978, the plane was brought out of storage and fully restored. It was determined at this time that the 
		modified nose section should be ‘corrected’ back to the original A-1 fighter configuration to maintain 
		authenticity. On display in the Jet Gallery at the National Air and Space Museum on the Mall in Washington, DC.
T2-112	Focke-Wulf Ta 152H-0
		(Werk Nr 150010) Previously FE-112. T-2 Office of Air Force Intelligence, Technical Data Laboratory, 
		Air Materiel Command, Wright Field, Dayton, OH. Foreign Evaluation Center, Air Technical Service Command, 
		Freeman Field, Seymour, IN. Restoration at Freeman Field May46. Awaiting engine at Freeman Field Aug46. 
		Set aside for proposed USAAF aviation museum. Transferred to the aircraft storage area, 803rd Specialized Depot, 
		Orchard Place Airport, Park Ridge, Illinois. In 1950, it was moved again, this time to the National Air Museum 
		facility (now the Garber Facility) at Silver Hill, Maryland. In 1998 Museum restoration staff were treating 
		deteriorated sections of the wooden aft fuselage, fin, rudder, and right elevator when they discovered several 
		interesting items that offered tantalizing glimpses into the airplane's shadowy past. Extensive wood rot 
		was found in where the horizontal stabilizer joins the vertical fin. The restoration staff speculated that 
		during testing at Wright Field, pilots and engineers became concerned that the wooden tail may have been 
		weakened by defective glues or sabotage. They strengthened the entire area with steel plate. However, 
		this work may have compromised flight safety because it required moving the horizontal stabilizer forward 
		several inches, exacerbating a tail-heavy condition already known to the Germans. The restoration specialist 
		removed the steel plate and rebuilt the tail to the original German configuration. NASM technicians carefully 
		sanded through the layers of Allied paint to reveal previous markings and much of the original German paint. 
		They found the old Foreign Equipment number, RAF markings, the Reich Defense tail bands of JG 301, and the 
		original Nazi Hakenkreuz. The staff also found 20mm MG 151 gun mounts and fittings in the upper cowling. 
		However, these were not normally found in H-0 models, suggesting this airframe may have been destined 
		to become a C-1 variant. Stored by National Air and Space Museum at Silver Hill, Maryland.

		Command, Wright Field, Dayton, OH. Foreign Evaluation Center, Air Technical Service Command, Freeman Field, 
		Seymour, IN. The end of war in Europe rendered further testing unnecessary; the aircraft was used only 
		for display purposes. One known exhibition was an outdoor display in Washington, DC. Set aside for proposed 
		national aviation museum. Dismantled and shipped Transferred to the aircraft storage area, 803rd Specialized Depot, 
		Orchard Place Airport, Park Ridge, Illinois Jul46. Transferred to the Smithsonian Institution 1949. 
		Moved to the National Air Museum storage facility at Silver Hill, Maryland. 
		Restoration began in 1980 when specialists began sanding through layers of postwar paint applied in the US to 
		uncover the original Luftwaffe paint and markings. It flew first as a Fw 190 A-7 fighter but Focke-Wulf 
		later rebuilt it as a F-8 ground-attack fighter-bomber. The aircraft wore at least three different camouflage 
		schemes and a manufacturer's data plate found inside the fuselage indicated that its first Werk-Nummer 
		(serial number) was 640069. Infrared photographs of the aircraft's vertical stabilizer revealed that after 
		rebuild, Focke-Wulf assigned the airframe a new Werk-Nummer 931884. Restoration concluded and it was rolled 
		out on 11Oct83 for public display at the Paul E. Garber facility at Silver Hill. The final paint and markings 
		applied were historically accurate for this specific airframe: SG 2 (Schlagtgeschwader or Ground-Attack 
		Squadron 2) during October 1944. On display in the Boeing Aviation Hangar, at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, 
		Chantilly, Virginia.

		Air Materiel Command, Wright Field, Dayton, OH. Foreign Evaluation Center, Air Technical Service Command, 
		Freeman Field, Seymour, IN. Not used for evaluation but instead became a display aircraft, touring various 
		airbases. Donated to the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA; awaiting shipment Aug46. 
		Sometime around 1955 an FAA inspector in Atlanta traded a working aero engine for the two aircraft. 
		They were then stored out in the open at various rental properties and soon became derelict due to vandals 
		and exposure to the elements. It was at this time that Wr 610824 lost its original wings. Someone had the 
		local trash company haul it off to the dump. In the mid-1960s the wreck was purchased and shipped to 
		Sun Valley, California. The buyer’s intentions were to restore the aircraft (in his own garage!) and 
		he was able to obtain a set of wings from a Czech Avia. He reportedly tried to re-skin the fuselage 
		and because of a lack of proper tools and expertise, the results were not a professional looking job. 
		This project was eventually abandoned and the airframe sold to an unknown private collector. 
		Somewhere between 1979 and 1984 it was sold to Doug Arnold’s Warplanes of Great Britain Collection and 
		placed in storage at his Biggin Hill facility to eventually become a stable mate with another Bf 109G-10, 
		(Werk Nr. 610937). In 1989 it was sold to Evergreen Ventures and restored to flying condition by 
		Vintage Aircraft Restorations Ltd., of Fort Collins, Colorado. Registered May90 as N109MS; cancelled 12Apr99. 
		Restoration work was completed at McMinnville, OR in 1998. Since 1Apr99, the Bf 109G has been on loan to

		Transferred to the Smithsonian Institution. Moved to the National Air Museum storage facility at Silver Hill, Maryland. 
		Restored to static display during the late 1970s as the first Japanese aircraft to be restored by the NASM. 
		When restored in 1976, the correct tail marking for this Zero were unknown, and the museum chose the tail 
		markings "61-131". At the time, this Zero was painted in the markings of A6M5 Zero MSN 4361, tail code 61-131, 
		captured at Aslito Field on Saipan. Later research indicated this Zero must have had tail code 61-108, while

		post restoration test flight to Wright Field, Dayton, OH 10Jul46; towed by a B-17. From Wright Field the glider was 
		piloted by the head of the Glider Branch at Wright Field, to Elmira, NY for display at the National Soaring Meet. 
		Believed to have been taken Transferred to the aircraft storage area, 803rd Specialized Depot, Orchard Place Airport,

T2-3000	Ilyushin Il-10 ground attack aircraft (NATO code name 'Beast’)
		Democratic People's Republic of Korea Air Force. ‘Yellow 44’ of the 57th Aviation Assault Regiment. 
		Abandoned at Kimpo (K-14), Seoul, South Korea following the Inchon landings, before being captured in mid-Sep50 
		by the US Marines. Captured with both forward 23mm forward guns, and two 7.6 mm forward guns, also the 12.7mm rear 
		turret MG and 4 rockets. Shipped to the USA. Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory, Buffalo, NY, arriving there on 24Jan51. 
		Cornell fully restored the IL-10 to flying condition. Air Technical Intelligence Center (ATIC), Wright-Patterson AFB, 
		Dayton, Ohio. Delivered to Wright-Patterson AFB 8May51. Flown eleven times between June and August 1951, during 
		which it was involved in two accidents. On 5Jul51 the IL-10 took off for a test flight. Soon after takeoff the 
		tower informed the pilot that his rear (gunner) canopy was open. Unable to close the rear canopy in flight the 
		pilot chose to land so the canopy could be closed. The pilot accomplished a normal landing and taxyed to the 
		parking ramp. The pilot made a right turn to pass a North American AT-6 when the right landing gear folded up, 
		causing major damage to the propeller, right wing, and right wheel fairing. Twelve series of retraction tests 
		failed to reveal any malfunction of the main landing gear system. The landing gear and flap handles are identical 
		in color and construction and located side by side on the cockpit pedestal. It is believed that while attempting 
		to raise the flaps during post landing check the pilot inadvertently moved the landing gear control handle to the 
		up position sufficiently to release the right landing gear down lock and allow the right gear to collapse. 
		On 1Aug51 the IL-10 was being ground checked at Wright-Patterson AFB with water being run through the coolant 
		radiator while the engine was idled at 1600rpm in order to reduce coolant temp subsequent to a power check. 
		The pilot signaled for the crew chief to dismount from the left wing. The crewman was caught by the propeller blast, 
		lost his balance, and was forced to jump from the wing injuring his left ankle, foot and leg. Flown to Phillips Field, 
		Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD 17Aug51. Transferred to the Terminal Ballistics Laboratory, Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD. 
		Subjected to vulnerability tests; these tests consisted of gunfire which would have rendered the aircraft unflyable. 
		It was to be returned to ATIC after these tests, but would have been in barely salvageable condition.
T2-3001	Ilyushin Il-10 ground attack aircraft (NATO code name 'Beast’)
		Democratic People's Republic of Korea Air Force. ‘Yellow 55’ of the 57th Aviation Assault Regiment. Abandoned at 
		Kimpo (K-14), Seoul, South Korea following the Inchon landings, before being captured in mid-Sep50 by the US Marines. 
		Captured with both forward 23mm forward guns, and two 7.6 mm forward guns, also the 12.7mm rear turret MG and 4 rockets. 
		Shipped to the USA. Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory, Buffalo, NY, arriving there on 24Jan51. Used as a spares source 
		for the restoration of IL-10 T2-3000 to flying condition. Air Technical Intelligence Center (ATIC), Wright-Patterson AFB, 
		Dayton, Ohio. Delivered to Wright-Patterson AFB 8May51. Stored.
T2-3002	Yakovlev Yak-9P single-engine fighter (NATO code name 'Frank’)
		Democratic People's Republic of Korea Air Force. Possibly Black 32. Found in airworthy condition by US Marines at 
		Kimpo (K-14), Seoul, South Korea on 17Sep50. Shipped to the USAA for evaluation. Rebuilt by the Cornell Aeronautical 
		Laboratory, Buffalo, NY. First flight in US 21Sep51. The aircraft accumulated 23 hours and 55 minutes of flying 
		time in all, making it's last flight on 12Dec51. Following the conclusion of the tests, the Yak-9P was allotted 
		to the USAF Museum in the mid-1950s. Due to lack of storage space, it was scrapped in 1958. It is alleged that the 
		Yak was offered back to the Soviet Union as a gift by the USAF!
T2-3400	Junkers Ju 290A-4
		(Werk Nr 110196) Previously FE-3400. T-2 Office of Air Force Intelligence, Technical Data Laboratory, Air Materiel 
		Command, Wright Field, Dayton, OH. Foreign Evaluation Center, Air Technical Service Command, Freeman Field, 
		Seymour, IN. The Ju 290 was displayed at open houses and air shows in 1945 and 1946. By the end of 1946, however, 
		this unusual plane was grounded and was being dismantled for specialized study. The Air Force was still a branch 
		of the Army at that time, and there was no museum program that would provide a resting place for this unusual example 
		of war booty. The aircraft was scrapped on 12Dec46; a German booby trap was still extant in the right wing.
T2-4010	Junkers Ju 388L-1 Störtebeker
		(Werk Nr. 560049) Previously FE-4010. T-2 Office of Air Force Intelligence, Technical Data Laboratory,

T2-4012	Messerschmitt Me 262A-1a/U3
		Previously FE-4012. T-2 Office of Air Force Intelligence, Technical Data Laboratory, Air Materiel Command, Wright Field, 
		Dayton, OH. Foreign Evaluation Center, Air Technical Service Command, Freeman Field, Seymour, IN. This aircraft was 
		selected to participate in classified tests against the Lockheed P-80, and underwent a nose section change with T2-111. 
		The aircraft was given an overall reconditioning for the tests. After the AAF completed the flight testing, the 
		aircraft was disassembled and shipped to Hughes Aircraft in Culver City, CA for storage. There the plane was 
		reassembled and the engines were ground-run, but the plane wasn't flown. Rumors have persisted over the years that 
		there was a desire on the part of Howard Hughes to fine tune the Me 262 and enter it in a Thompson Trophy race 
		against the AAF's P-80. However, there appears to be no factual basis for it, and the timing of it all just doesn't fit. 
		The Hughes company never flew the aircraft. In May of 1949, RKO Pictures requested permission to use it in the 
		production of a motion picture. In July the Air Force agreed and the aircraft spent the next two years with RKO 
		during the filming of the John Wayne film ‘Jet Pilot’. The plane was returned to the Air Force after filming. 
		In 1951, airframe destruction tests were proposed, although these were cancelled in early May. The jet was then 
		released as an instructional airframe to Cal Aero Technical Institute at Glendale airport, where it was used 
		as a hands-on teaching tool for student aircraft mechanics. In 1955, the plane was acquired by Edward Maloney 
		for his Planes of Fame collection, and was partially restored, and statically displayed incorrectly as WkNr 111617 
		at Chino, CA. In November 2000 Microsoft executive Paul G. Allen purchased the plane for his Flying Heritage 
		Collection, located at Paine Field, Washington. Being restored to flying condition, to be powered a pair 
		of original Jumo engines. Registered 15Dec00 as N94503; current [Dec18].
T2-4600	Henschel Hs 129B-1/R2 ground-attack aircraft
		(Werk Nr 03880)	Previously FE-4600. T-2 Office of Air Force Intelligence, Technical Data Laboratory, Air Materiel 
		Command, Wright Field, Dayton, OH. Foreign Evaluation Center, Air Technical Service Command, Freeman Field, 
		Seymour, IN 1946. Allotted for storage at Davis-Monthan AFB, Tucson, Arizona but force landed at Gallatin, 
		Tennessee 24Jul46 while being ferried to Davis-Monthan. The aircraft ran out of fuel due to suspected tank 
		leakage and was slightly damaged during the subsequent forced landing. It was taken Transferred to the aircraft 
		storage area, 803rd Specialized Depot, Orchard Place Airport, Park Ridge, Illinois on 5Aug46. When the 
		storage depot was required for other purposed during the Korean War, the aircraft was put up for disposal as scrap. 
		Only the nose section was saved from a scrap yard and bought by Earl Reinhart in June 1951, where it remained 
		in storage at his home in Mundelein, Illinois. In 1966 it went on display at the Victory Air Museum, Mundelein, 
		Illinois, which was formed by Earl Reinert and Paul Polidori. It remained on display until the Museum was 
		dispersed following the death of Paul Polidori in a flying accident in 1985. In May 1986 the cockpit was 
		purchased by Martin J. Mednis of Sidney and taken to Australia. It is now being restored for display in 
		his 'Der Adler Luftwaffe Museum'.

T2-4618	Focke-Achelis Fa 330A Bachstelze autogyro kite
		(Wk. Nr. 100404) Previously FE-4618. T-2 Office of Air Force Intelligence, Technical Data Laboratory, Air Materiel 
		Command, Wright Field, Dayton, OH. Conducted a number of flight tests at Wright Field in 1946, during which it 
		was equipped with a wheeled landing gear and towed by a truck. However the relatively large landing gear upset 
		the center-of-gravity and made the aircraft difficult to takeoff and land. After four successful flights the 
		aircraft rolled on landing and sustained some damage. The aircraft was repaired and sent to MacDill AFB, FL 
		for further testing in 1948. There it was towed behind a boat, minus the wheeled undercarriage, for 
		consideration as an aid for US Air Force small rescue boats in spotting downed airmen in the water. 
		Unfortunately in August 1948 the towline broke and the aircraft sank in Tampa Bay, but the pilot managed to 
		escape. The aircraft mysteriously disappeared from where it sank and rumors state that it may have turned 
		up in an army surplus store over twenty years later.

		vanished into an historical black hole for the next two years. The story resumes on October 22, 1947, when 
		Stanley A. Hall wrote a report called "Horten Tailless Sailplanes." Hall explained that the US Air Force 
		loaned the Horten III f, III h, and VI V2 to the Northrop Aeronautical Institute, across the road from the 
		Northrop Aircraft Company in Hawthorne, California. This loan answered a "joint petition of Northrop Aircraft Inc., 
		and the Southern California Soaring Association [SCSA]." The two organizations wanted the sailplanes "for purposes 
		of inspection by West Coast engineers who, in interests of the development of all-wing aircraft, sought for 
		evidence of similarity between the design practices of American and German engineers”. Northrop personnel 
		planned to test-fly the two Horten III gliders but they arrived "damaged beyond reasonable repair [and] 
		too badly damaged to make photography worthwhile." Despite their condition, a throng of aeronautical 
		professionals turned out to inspect them. Among the curious crowds were Northrop engineers and students of

The following aircraft are known to have been captured by the USAAF/USAF. Some were shipped to the USA for evaluation but do 
not appear to have been allocated Foreign Equipment serials. Other were retained in theater, many painted in USAAF colors, 
some of which were operated by their captors.
 

 		Bachem Ba 349B Natter
		This rocket powered aircraft launched vertically, along a rail. It was made so that when the flight was over, the pilot 
		bailed out and the aircraft parachuted back to earth.
		T-2 Office of Air Force Intelligence, Technical Data Laboratory, Air Materiel Command, Wright Field, Dayton, OH. Foreign 
		Evaluation Center, Air Technical Service Command, Freeman Field, Seymour, IN. Awaiting disposition on the ramp at 
		Freeman Field Aug46.

		Bücker Bü 131B Jungmann trainer
		Salvaged by a USAAF pilot from a dump near Berlin. Flown to Paris, France. Shipped to the USA. Registered as NX372; 
		cancelled. Damaged beyond repair 1947. 

		Bücker Bü 181 Bestmann trainer and light transport
		Captured at Nürnberg -Roth. Salvaged by a USAAF Sergeant and hidden in a wheat field when instructed to destroy the 
		aircraft. Handed over to one of Watson’s Whizzers and flown to Salzburg, Austria. Later flown to RAF Biggin Hill, Kent. 
		Returned to Germany and used as a hack. Destroyed when flown into a power line south of Munich.

		Darmstadt-München DM-1 / Lippisch DM-1 delta glider
		Aerodynamic test vehicle for the Lippisch P 13 ramjet fighter. The DM1 was built as a single-seat glider from steel-tubing, 
		plywood and bakelite impregnated plywood, with a cockpit in the extreme nose of the junction of the triangular 
		mainplanes and fin. Launching the DM1 was to be by piggy-back or aero-tow. Captured at the DFS test facility at Prien, 
		Germany. After occupation by US Troops in May 1945, work continued at the DM1 on behalf of the US military government, 
		with General Patton and Charles Lindbergh visiting Prien to see the project. Completed in early November 1945, the 
		DM1 was shipped in a wooden box from Rotterdam, Netherlands to the USA on the Liberty ship SS King Hathaway, 
		arriving Boston, Massachusetts 19Jan46. Langley Field, Virginia. The flow behaviour of the DM1 was examined in 
		the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics full-size wind tunnel. While at Langley, the DM1 underwent 
		significant changes. The original design used airfoils of very thick section, especially the vertical stabilizer, 
		which ran all the way to the nose of the aircraft and served double duty as the cockpit. For high speed flight, 
		thicker airfoils are known to have very high drag, which proved to be true on the DM1. The design was progressively 
		modified in an effort to lower drag. One of the first changes was to remove the large vertical stabilizer 
		and replace it with one of much smaller size in a more conventional layout, and adding a normal cockpit 
		canopy taken from a Lockheed P-80 Shooting Star. Further work introduced sharp extensions along the leading edge 
		of the wing, which had the side-effect of showing periodic generation of very large vortexes over the wing. 
		The significance of this effect would not be fully understood until the 1950s. The DM1 influenced design of the 
		Convair delta fighters such as XP-92, XF-92A, XFY, F2Y, F-102 and F-106. After completion of testing the DM1 
		was transferred to the Smithsonian Institution. Displayed at the USAF Museum, Wright-Patterson AFB, Dayton, OH 1950s. 
		In storage by the National Air and Space Museum at the Paul E. Garber Preservation, Restoration, and Storage Facility, 
		Silver Hill, Maryland.

		Messerschmitt P.1101 single-seat, single-jet fighter project
		The Me P.1101 V1 was about 80% complete when the Oberammergau complex was discovered by American troops on 29Apr45. 
		A few days before the allies were expected to appear, Messerschmitt had all the engineering drawings, calculations 
		and design work placed on microfilm and packed in watertight containers. These containers were then hidden in 
		four locations in surrounding villages. An American infantry unit entered the Oberammergau complex, seized 
		a few documents, and destroyed much of what remained with axes. The Me P.1101 V1 incomplete prototype was also found, 
		and pulled out of a nearby tunnel where it was hidden. Within a few days of the German capitulation, American 
		specialists had arrived to assess the significance of the seized Messerschmitt complex. After questioning some 
		of the Messerschmitt employees, it was learned of the missing documents. When the American team tried to recover 
		these hidden microfilmed documents, they found that the French Army had already recovered some of the documents. 
		Air Technical Service Command, Wright Field, Dayton, OH. After the aircraft had been shipped to the USA, 
		there was some lobbying by Messerschmitt Chief Designer Woldemar Voigt and Robert J. Woods of Bell aircraft 
		to have the P.1101 V1 completed by June 1945. This was precluded by the destruction of some critical documents 
		and the refusal of the French to release the remaining majority of the design documents which they had obtained 
		prior to the arrival of American units to the area. The airframe meanwhile became a favorite prop for GI 
		souvenir photos. The aircraft was stored at Wright Field until it was repaired and fitted with an American 
		Allison J-35 engine. Unfortunately it was damaged in the only attempt to take off. Further tests were 
		abandoned in August 1948, and the prototype went to the Bell Company. The P.1101 was used as ground test-bed 
		for the Bell X-5, but damage ruled out any possibility for repair although some of the Me P.1101's design 
		features were subsequently used by Bell. Bell used the Me P.1101 as the basis for the X-5, during which individual 
		parts of the P.1101 were used for static testing. Sometime in the early 1950s, the remainder of the 
		Messerschmitt Me P.1101 V1 was scrapped.

		Arado Ar 196A-5
		(Werk Nr 623167) Built by Fokker, Amsterdam, Netherlands 1944. Stammkennzeichen PO+HG. Bordfliegergruppe 196, 
		Geschwaderkennung T3+BH. The Allies recovered two Ar 196A-5s found on board the German battlecruiser Prinz Eugen 
		when she surrendered at Copenhagen, Denmark. When the US Navy took custody of Prinz Eugen, they were more 
		interested in the catapult system used to launch the floatplane rather than the Ar 196A-5 but they saved the 
		two aircraft anyway. The ship sailed to the US leaving Bremerhaven, Germany on 13Jan46 and arrived at the 
		Philadelphia Naval Ship Yards on 3Feb46. The aircraft had only 14 hours of operational flying time and US Navy 
		pilots added just four more hours during catapult testing and evaluation at the Naval Air Materiel Center, 
		Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The US Navy repainted the airplane with markings copied from a different aircraft. 
		That floatplane was GA+DX (Werk Nr. 68967). After years in storage, the Navy transferred the airplane to 
		the Smithsonian Institution in 1961. Stored at the National Air and Space Museum Paul E. Garber Facility, 
		Silver Hill, Maryland.

		Arado Ar 196A-5
		(Werk Nr 623183) Built by Fokker, Amsterdam, Netherlands 1944. Bordfliegergruppe 196, Geschwaderkennung T3+CH. 
		The Allies recovered two Ar 196A-5s found on board the German battlecruiser Prinz Eugen when she surrendered at 
		Copenhagen, Denmark. When the US Navy took custody of Prinz Eugen, they were more interested in the catapult 
		system used to launch the floatplane rather than the Ar 196A-5 but they saved the two aircraft anyway. 
		The ship sailed to the US leaving Bremerhaven, Germany on 13Jan46 and arrived at the Philadelphia Naval 
		Ship Yards on 3Feb46. Flight tested off the coast of Delaware. From 1949 it was stored in the open at 
		NAS Willow Grove, Pennsylvania. Under deteriorating general conditions its identifier changed successively 
		to TW+SH, T3+HK and GA+DX. In 1989 the aircraft was transferred to the National Museum of Naval 
		Aviation (NMNA), later the National Naval Aviation Museum at Pensacola, Florida, being severely damaged 
		in the process. In March 2013 the navies of the USA and Germany reached an agreement by which the aircraft 
		was transported to Germany on loan to the Marinefliegergeschwader 3 ("Graf Zeppelin") for restoration at the 
		Aeronauticum in Nordholz, south of Cuxhaven, Germany. For various reasons, the proposed restoration by the 
		Aeronauticum failed. At the beginning of 2016 the commander of Marinefliegergeschwader initiated the 
		founding of a non-profit association. The task of the Förderverein Arado 196 eV is to restore the Arado 196 
		at the Aeronauticum. After completion of the restoration the aircraft will go on display in Germany for an 
		indefinite period before return back to the USA.

		Kawasaki Ki-61-I Tei (Allied code name ‘Tony’)
		This 19th Sentai aircraft (the markings of its previous unit, the 55th Sentai, were still faintly visible 
		on the aircrafts tail while still in Japanese markings) was captured by the US Marines at Yontan airfield 
		on Okinawa in 1945 and restored to flying status by personnel of VMF-322 and VMF-323, complete with blue 
		fuselage, white tail, horizontal stabilizors and engine band and red spinner, rudder and elevators and 
		US markings, becoming known as the ‘Yontan Tony’, ‘Tony Toy’ or ‘Flying Toy’. The only damage done to the 
		aircraft was one shot to the radiator. The aircraft was most likely scrapped when the Marines at Yontan 
		and Kadena airfields ran out of Ki-61 spare parts.

		Kawasaki Ki-61-Ia Hien (Allied code name ‘Tony’)
		(MSN 5017)	Found complete by US forces Sep45. This aircraft was the last remaining Tony in Japan and was put 
		on display at Yokota Air Base, Fussa, Japan. It was initially set up on the base in Japanese markings after 
		being captured at Yokota at the end of the war. Sometime in 1947, it was deemed offensive to American 
		personnel and repainted in bogus USAF markings as ‘2210’. In 1953, the Tony was returned to the Japanese 
		people through civilian representatives of the Japan Aeronautic Association (Nippon Kohkuh Kyohkai). Moved 
		to Hibiya Park in Tokyo near the Imperial Palace for display 1953. Iruma Air Base, Saitama Prefecture, Japan.

Captured During the Cold War

2057		Mikoyan MiG-15bis (NATO code name 'Fagot’)
		Surrendered at Kimpo (K-14), Seoul, South Korea 21Sep53 by a defecting North Korean pilot to claim a reward of $100,000. 
		Flown to Kadena AB, Okinawa. Repainted in USAF markings with serial 616. Air Technical Intelligence Center (ATIC), 
		Wright-Patterson AFB, Dayton, Ohio. Evaluated at Kadena. Disassembled and airlifted to Dayton Dec53 . When flight 
		testing was complete, the United States then offered to return the airplane to its rightful owners but no country 
		claimed the plane. In Nov57 it was transferred to the USAF Museum for public exhibition. On display in the Korean 
		Gallery at the National Museum of the United States Air Force, Wright–Patterson AFB, Dayton, Ohio.
FU-599	Yakovlev Yak-23 jet fighter (NATO code name 'Flora’)
		Romanian Air Force, 135th Jet Fighter Regiment, Caransebe?. Flown to Yugoslavia by a pilot who requested 
		political asylum as soon as he landed. The jet had all its markings removed and was put through a rigorous 
		flight test program by the Testing and Evaluation Center (VOC), including weaponry trials (the Yak-23 had two 
		NR-23 guns in the lower nose, 23mm caliber with 90 rounds each). Three different Yugoslav pilots 21 sorties 
		totaling 9 hours. In October 1953, Yugoslavian authorities contacted the local CIA residence, offering the Yak 
		for evaluation. The CIA, in its turn, called upon the Air Technical Intelligence Center (ATIC) at Wright-Patterson AFB, 
		Dayton, OH. Thus “Project Alpha” was born. The crated Yak was airlifted by a C-124 belonging to the 
		4th Troop Carrier Squadron, 62nd Troop Carrier Wing based at Larson AFB, Washington; the last leg of the 
		mission being flown from a US base near Munich to Yugoslavia at night. Three Yugoslavian personnel accompanied 
		the dismantled Yak to Wright-Patterson AFB. The Flora was given removable USAF markings and serial FU-599. 
		For those outside the program who asked, it was the Bell X-5 prototype. A total of 8 test flights were 
		performed, with the first on 4Nov53 and the last on 25Nov53. After this last flight, the US markings were removed, 
		the plane disassembled and crated for transport back to Yugoslavia. Another C-124 from the same unit was called 
		upon to deliver the crates. Apart from the crew, 6 to 12 foreigners (almost certainly Yugoslavs) and an 
		unidentified USAF Colonel boarded the plane at Wright Patterson. The route was the same – flying to the 
		USAF base near Munich, then at night to Yugoslavia, where they were intercepted and led by two propeller-driven 
		fighters. The pilot believes he landed at Pancevo, where the Yak and the foreigners disembarked. 
T2-3000	Ilyushin Il-10 ground attack aircraft (NATO code name 'Beast’)
		Democratic People's Republic of Korea Air Force. ‘Yellow 44’ of the 57th Aviation Assault Regiment. 
		Abandoned at Kimpo (K-14), Seoul, South Korea following the Inchon landings, before being captured in mid-Sep50 
		by the US Marines. Captured with both forward 23mm forward guns, and two 7.6 mm forward guns, also the 12.7mm rear 
		turret MG and 4 rockets. Shipped to the USA. Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory, Buffalo, NY, arriving there on 24Jan51. 
		Cornell fully restored the IL-10 to flying condition. Air Technical Intelligence Center (ATIC), Wright-Patterson AFB, 
		Dayton, Ohio. Delivered to Wright-Patterson AFB 8May51. Flown eleven times between June and August 1951, during 
		which it was involved in two accidents. On 5Jul51 the IL-10 took off for a test flight. Soon after takeoff the 
		tower informed the pilot that his rear (gunner) canopy was open. Unable to close the rear canopy in flight the 
		pilot chose to land so the canopy could be closed. The pilot accomplished a normal landing and taxyed to the 
		parking ramp. The pilot made a right turn to pass a North American AT-6 when the right landing gear folded up, 
		causing major damage to the propeller, right wing, and right wheel fairing. Twelve series of retraction tests 
		failed to reveal any malfunction of the main landing gear system. The landing gear and flap handles are identical 
		in color and construction and located side by side on the cockpit pedestal. It is believed that while attempting 
		to raise the flaps during post landing check the pilot inadvertently moved the landing gear control handle to the 
		up position sufficiently to release the right landing gear down lock and allow the right gear to collapse. 
		On 1Aug51 the IL-10 was being ground checked at Wright-Patterson AFB with water being run through the coolant 
		radiator while the engine was idled at 1600rpm in order to reduce coolant temp subsequent to a power check. 
		The pilot signaled for the crew chief to dismount from the left wing. The crewman was caught by the propeller blast, 
		lost his balance, and was forced to jump from the wing injuring his left ankle, foot and leg. Flown to Phillips Field, 
		Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD 17Aug51. Transferred to the Terminal Ballistics Laboratory, Aberdeen Proving Grounds, MD. 
		Subjected to vulnerability tests; these tests consisted of gunfire which would have rendered the aircraft unflyable. 
		It was to be returned to ATIC after these tests, but would have been in barely salvageable condition.
T2-3001	Ilyushin Il-10 ground attack aircraft (NATO code name 'Beast’)
		Democratic People's Republic of Korea Air Force. ‘Yellow 55’ of the 57th Aviation Assault Regiment. Abandoned at 
		Kimpo (K-14), Seoul, South Korea following the Inchon landings, before being captured in mid-Sep50 by the US Marines. 
		Captured with both forward 23mm forward guns, and two 7.6 mm forward guns, also the 12.7mm rear turret MG and 4 rockets. 
		Shipped to the USA. Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory, Buffalo, NY, arriving there on 24Jan51. Used as a spares source 
		for the restoration of IL-10 T2-3000 to flying condition. Air Technical Intelligence Center (ATIC), Wright-Patterson AFB, 
		Dayton, Ohio. Delivered to Wright-Patterson AFB 8May51. Stored.
T2-3002	Yakovlev Yak-9P single-engine fighter (NATO code name 'Frank’)
		Democratic People's Republic of Korea Air Force. Possibly Black 32. Found in airworthy condition by US Marines at 
		Kimpo (K-14), Seoul, South Korea on 17Sep50. Shipped to the USAA for evaluation. Rebuilt by the Cornell Aeronautical 
		Laboratory, Buffalo, NY. First flight in US 21Sep51. The aircraft accumulated 23 hours and 55 minutes of flying 
		time in all, making it's last flight on 12Dec51. Following the conclusion of the tests, the Yak-9P was allotted 
		to the USAF Museum in the mid-1950s. Due to lack of storage space, it was scrapped in 1958. It is alleged that the 
		Yak was offered back to the Soviet Union as a gift by the USAF!
