Photo Comment

This is one of 45 examples of the training MXY7-K1 Ohka glider completed. It is equipped with a landing skid and flaps so it could be re-used. It also carried water ballast, which was expelled before landing, in place of explosives and the rocket motor. Now on display at the National Museum of the USAF.
