Wartime History
Abandoned at Danip Airstrip (Alexishafen I).

Heavily scrapped, only the engine, mount and part of the wing structure remain.

Justin Taylan visited in November 2003:
"Although very little of this wreck remained, the locals had discovered an aerial bomb next to the wreck, and dug it up.  It appeared to be a 60kg bomb. They had called the local Police to remove it but they never showed up, so they have the bomb stored in a pig pen nearby. I ran out of digital camera space, and only took video footage of the bomb (will add later). I wonder if its still there. The aircraft had a 3-bladed propeller. There is a chance this wreck is a Ki-51 Sonia, but I feel its an Ki-43-II Oscar. See photos for all images, anyone have any other ideas?"
