From Robin Mallon
You had a photo of a Japanese Kamikaze rocket plane and asked for info.
The one in the Japanese Kamikaze Rocket Plane photo is a Yokosuka MXY-7 model 22 serial number I-18 named the "Ohka". Allies referred to it as the "Baka Bomb" meaning foolish or silly bomb. The Marines have serial I-13 in their museum. The specs follow:
Notes: Single seat suicide attack aircraft
Propulsion No. of Engines:1
Performance Range:80 miles 129 km
Just a quick follow-u to my previous e-mail. The link is to a restored version of the Kamikaze rocket plane you were requesting info on. Robin

|A man, a plane and a fighter group in the deadly air war over Europe in WWII. When Robert Johnson returned from the European Theater in 1944, he was the highest-scoring American ace of the war. The plane he flew was the Republic P-47C Thunderbolt, a rugged 2,000 horsepower fighter that weighed seven tons. British pilots said that the "Jug" wouldn't stand a chance against the more maneuverable Luftwaffe fighters. But in the hands of aces like Johnson and Gabreski, the Thunderbolt proved itself the most deadly fighter plane of the war.|
