Aircraft History
Built by Kawasaki. Delivered to the Japanese Army Air Force (JAAF) as Ki-100-1b manufacture number 8476M.

Wartime History

Assigned to an unknown Sentai. At the end of the Pacific War, this aircraft was surrendered in Japan and transported to Tebrau Airfield in southern Malaysia.

This aircraft was one of sixty-four assembled by Allied Technical Air Intelligence Unit–South East Asia (ATAIU-SEA) with Royal Air Force (RAF) markings painted over top the Japanese markings and "ATAIU-SEA" painted on the fuselage in white. One of four Japanese aircraft shipped to the United Kingdom A6M5 Zero, Ki-46-III Dinah 5439, this aircraft and K9W1 Momiji.

Storage
It is believed this aircraft arrived in the United Kingdom during February 1947 and was misidentified as an Oscar Model III. Placed into storage, it was later transferred to the Axis aircraft collection at St. Athen. When the St. Athan collection closed this aircraft became part of the collection at Aerospace Museum at Cosford.
