This group of photos depict a large number of captured Japanese warplanes that were transported to the U.S. for evaluation just after the war. Some of the photos are of the aircraft being prepared for shipments at Yokosuka, Japan in late October and early November, 1945. Others depict the planes on board USS Barnes (CVE-20) during its transit to Norfolk via Alameda and the Panama Canal.
Aircraft depicted include:
Kawanishi N1K2
Kawasaki Ki-48
Kawasaki Ki-102
Kyushu Q1W
Mitsubishi A6M
Mitsubishi Ki-46
Nakajima C6N
Nakajima J5N
Yokosuka P1Y
Yokosuka D4Y
Also included are photos of experimental Japanese wooden props, an aircraft revetment at Yokosuka and group of Japanese naval maintenance personnel that presumably assisted in preparing the aircraft for shipment.
