WARS END:

WHAT A TREASURE TROVE OF JAPANESE AIRCRAFT.
AIRCRAFT IN CENTER IS AN AICHI D4Y-1 CODE NAMED "JUDY".
OTHER AIRPLANES IN THE PHOTOGRAPH ARE A6M2, MODEL 21 ZERO, OTHER MODELS OF THE ZERO LOOK LIKE A6M5, MODEL 52s THE TWIN ENGINED AIRCRAFT ARE YOKOSUKA P1Y GINGA "FRANCES"
TODAY THESE AIRRAFT WOULD BE WORTH MILLIONS.

THE SCRAPMAN COMETH:

A FEW AIRCRAFT SURVIVED AND WERE TESTED IN THE USA, LATER SOME WERE SCRAPPED OR SAVED FOR LATER DISPLAY IN MUSEUMS.
AT THE END OF THE WAR, SURVIVING JAPANESE AIRCRAFT WERE TAXIED OR TOWED INTO ROWS AND BULLDOZED INTO PILES OF SCRAP, MELTED DOWN INTO ALUMINIUM INGOTS, BURIED OR BURNED.
ITEMS THAT COULD BE SALVAGED LIKE LANDING GEAR TIRES, TAIL WHEELS WERE LATER RECYCLED WHEELED CARTS TO HELP HELP FARMERS, OTHER EQUIPMENT LIKE TRACTORS AND LIGHT TRUCKS.
THE DESTRUCTION OF WWII JAPANESE AIRCRAFT AND OTHER EQUIPMENT LASTED INTO 1947!

AS A CHILD IN THE 1950s, I REMEMBER THOSE CHEAP LITTLE TOYS AND OTHER ITEMS YOU COULD BUY THAT SAID: MADE IN JAPAN.
