Aerospace Museum at Cosford
LinkCosford, United Kingdom

Several impressive Japanese aircraft are displayed at Cosford. Both have been beautifully restored to their original condition and now reside at the Aerospace Museum at Cosford.

The museum's collection of Japanese aircraft are the only remaining Japanese aircraft transported to the United Kingdom after World War II. Surrendered at Tebrau, Malaysia at the end of the war, the aircraft were sent via ship to to No 47 M.U. Sealand for crating for storage, this was February 1947. In November 1985 they weree transferred to RAF Museum reserve collection RAF St. Athan before being moved to RAF Cosford in June 1989. Thanks to Steve Dodd, Cosford museum member for additional information.
