Taken at Weimar Germany 12 May 45. American soldiers inspect Me 262 A-2a/U2 (W.Nr. 110 555)



The bomber second prototype (W.Nr. 110 555) was completed in January 1945 and featured a modified bombardier’s compartment – the Lotfekanzel II. The aircraft also received alternative designation Me 262 V11. The prototype first flew in February 1945 and by the end of March had completed 16 test sorties. The aircraft was lost on March 30, 1945 when it crashed during a forced landing attempt.

What if the jets never quite made it - could the Me-262 have been put into service with piston engines?




I think blade tips will be damaged somehow. ;) 8) :o

Well, it isn't that much more insane than the XP-72 Ultrabolt, which had to use three-point take-off and landing so that the propeller would not hit the ground...  ;D

Pretty sure I've seen one somewhere, with the engines moved to the top of the wings?
