ATIU 1945

Aircraft History
Built by Mitsubishi during August 1944. It is believed that the number 77 was the last two digits of the aircraft's manufacture number 177. When captured, the number 177 is listed as having been retrieved from a fuel tank of a Peggy with the same manufacture number dated July 29, 1944

Jim Long adds:
"I have conflicting information about the unit of which 7-77 was a part. Some books say it was the 7th Flying Regiment, others say it was the 98th Flying Regiment. I'm not sure what is right. But as far as I know, the 98th didn't serve in the Philippines."

On January 30, 1945 captured by U. S. Army at Clark Field partially disassembled or under repair.
