Aircraft History
Built by Kawasaki. Delivered to the Japanese Army Air Force (JAAF). Assigned to the 68th Sentai or 78th Sentai. Possibly Ki-61 347, Ki-61 484 or Ki-61 521.

Wartime History
Crashed east of the North Coast Road, across from Alexishafen Airfield.

Most of the aircraft was scrapped or otherwise disappeared. Enough wreckage is present to identify it as a Tony - a shattered engine, landing gear leg and one wing machine gun. Nearly all the aluminum structure has been scrapped.
