Captured Wings Wiki


This particular aircraft (C/n 3060) was one of two captured at the Nakajima Utsunomiya plant after the end of the war. They were shipped on board USS Barnes (CVE-20) from Yokosuka to the US on 3 November 1945. On 7 December 1945 they were handed to the USAAF, where the Office of Air Force Intelligence assigned the Foreign Evaluation numbers FE-301 and FE-302 to them, the first of which is the subject here.

The aircraft was tested, as there is a test report, but we know nothing of the eventual fate of T2-301 as it was known at the end of its days.
