Is a enigma the what was occured whit the only 2 built Ki-167.Some sources afirm what the 2 planes was fly in 13 august of 1945,but was intercepted by an F6F Hellcat and the 2 planes was shut down.Another sources say what the planes never was fly and was archived in a hangar of Okinawa and was study by the US what was removed the termite bomb of the planes and after of study the planes was new archived and was scrapped by the time and corrosion and due to that,in 1956 the structure of the both planes was shutdown.Nothing of the 2 hipotesis is confirmable
