Photo Comment

Ohka means 'cherry blossom' and was a rocket powered piloted aircraft to be carried and launched from a 'Mother' aircraft, glide as far as possible before making a final rocket powered approach to impact on its target. This example was captured by US forces in 1945 at Yontan Airfield, Okinawa.
