    Interior / Exterior

    The paint scheme is the exact markings of the “White 8” WNr. 110400 in which the leading ace, Walter Nowotny was shot down by US fighters after having downed 2 bombers on his own and suffering from a flame out on both engines. Nowotny had 258 confirmed victories, the first Ace to cross the magic 250 victory line and who was then pulled out of his front line unit to form the first 262 fighter unit, the “Kommando Nowotny”.

    Remarks

    This aircraft has been built/restored as a static museum piece and is not potentially airworthy. Approximately 30% of the aircraft is built using original ME-262 parts which were acquired over the past 20+ years. It is unique in the fact that this aircraft has so many original ME-262 parts while other replica ME-262 are new built and do not have any original parts.
