IJAAF & IJNAF wrecked aircraft #7 - Nakajima Ki-84 "Hayate" (Frank)

The first video today starts with a flight over the badly pockmarked Kikaijima airfield. On the far side, we can see the three aircraft (Ida, Nate, Judy) of a previous video and the remains of the 60 Sentai "Hiryu".

Hidden inside an earthen entaigo (revetment), though is a pretty derelict Nakajima Ki-84 "Hayate" (Frank) which I believe belongs to the 102 Sentai. For more about the unit take a look at our past post HERE. It seems the U.S. forces were not very comfortable leaving the aircraft at peace and they set it on fire.
