|Description||A particularly feeble excuse of a false flag used by the Japanese to try to justify their 1931 invasion of Manchuria|
The Mukden Incident happened around 10:20pm on 18 September 1931 when a small amount of dynamite exploded on some railway tracks. However, the explosion was minor and only slightly damaged a 1.5-meter section on one side of the rail, not hindering a train from Changchun passing the damaged track without difficulty and arriving at Shenyang at 10:30pm.
At 0400 hours on 19 Sep, Mukden was declared secure. By dawn, aircraft from the Japanese Chosun Army were landing at Mukden airport.
