Yohji Sakaida adds:
"My friend remembered this attack. He avoided a parachute and the runway. Also the people thought with attack of patatroopers. They hesitated about approaching the base. Also there was the youth who was going to catch a bomb. It exploded and he died. After the bombing, many unexploded bombs hung from a trees and were a problem."
