Ohka I-18 was captured along with I-13 and several others Ohka's at Yontan air field, Okinawa in 1945.
I-18 was on display for years at the Planes of Fame Museum, Chino California USA, its has
been moved to Valle, Arizona USA.

Growing up in 1960s Los Angeles, my parents would take my brother and I to the Museum, those were remembered days ma packed a lunch
we had a wonderful time.
