Aircraft History
Showa Aircraft Co., Ltd assembled only one George in August 1945, before the war ended. Likely, it was never assigned to a combat unit.

Wartime History
This George was captured during the occupation of Japan. Fate after capture unknown.

Jim Long adds:
"Three other photos of that very plane are printed in FAOW No. 53, pages 56-57. These are post-war photos taken in a hangar at the Showa (Shouwa) Aircraft Co., Ltd. Showa assembled only one plane before the end. I believe that the USSBS report on the Showa Company says it was completed during August 1945."

Thanks to Jim Long for additional information
