Origin[edit | edit source]

Nobuo Fujita was an officer in the Japanese Imperial Army who flew a floatplane from the submarine aircraft carrier I-25 and conducted the only air-bombing on the continental United States during World War Two. Using incendiary bombs, his mission was to start massive forest fires in the Pacific Northwest near the city of Brookings, Oregon with the objective of drawing the U.S. military's resources away from the Pacific Theater. The plan did not do significant damage and the city of Brookings invited him back years later in friendship.

Effects[edit | edit source]

The plane creates its own wind patterns when flown, allowing the user to maintain constant control even in stormy weather. The wind currents created inexplicably interfere with most electronic tracking systems, allowing it to slip past detection with ease. However, the wind’s more impressive effect is that it ignited the nearby air on fire.

The plane will become a large fireball, leaving the pilot uninjured but spreading the effects further. The wind currents it creates will become paths for the fire to travel, radiating outwards from the plane’s course. Anything that touches the fire will likely burst into flames instantly; objects with high water content however seem to explode on contact.
