Aircraft were captured by British forces.


Aircraft were made airworthy by Japanese ground crews, and flown by Japanese Naval Pilots working under Allied supervision early 1946.
Flown for the press and VIP's, I don't know if any testing was done, aircraft were flown out of the former Japanese Naval airfield at Tebrau, Malaya.
