    kamikaze's engine was found at USS Emmons wreck

    Hello all,

    debris from the plane was found at the USS Emmons wreck in Okinawa Japan.
    one of the bigest parts is an engine of plane. we believe that it was one of Japanese Kamikaze suicide planes crashed into Emmons on 6 April 1945.
    The type of engine is known Hitachi Ha-13 radial engine from Tachikawa Ki-36 Japanese army air force reconnaissance plane by our investigation.

    USS Emmons was a torpedo-boat destroyer of the United States Navy that hit by Kamikazes on 6th April 1945, and sank off northern okinawa on 7 April 1945. She lies at the bottom of the sea at a depth of 45 meters now.

    Here is our latest video of USS Emmons wreck on youtube. (the engine shown from at 2:00min.)
