IJAAF & IJNAF wrecked aircraft #26 - Okinawa Pt. 4 Yokosuka MXY7 "Ohka"

And we conclude this presentation of videos of wrecked Japanese aircraft found in Okinawa with ofcourse Yokosuka MXY7 "Ohka".
We have presented photos of these "Ohka" in an older post, here.
There are three high and good quality videos. I had to cut the first, from here, in three parts due to blogger limitations.

The second video is from here.

And finally, the color video is from here

I´m pretty curious how it happened that Ohka was found in Okinawa...Kokutai 721 was based in Kanoya, Kyushu. Are there any theories?

Japanese sources mention that they were sent to Okinawa in advance of their Betty transports. The US forces landed earlier than the Japanese expected so they were captured there. For more details regarding how they were going to be used, in other words the overall IJNAF plan, you'll need to dig deeper in the respective kokutai history.
