Moore's claim for an "Oscar" probably destroyed on 30 April 1945 was near Tachikawa airfield. This is coincidentally near Tachikawa factory that had produced some Ki43.

However I cannot see a reason why Frank Olynyk put radial-engine KI-100 in brackets in "Stars and Bars". Was there a Japanese squadron nearby that flew these? Or the loss of an aircraft that could match this? The Ki-100 is very different in shape to the KI-43 (Moore brought down one of these eight days previously, his gun camera shows it is clearly a Ki43).

best regards
