    Wonderful. I think if I went to an airshow, and they had a 2-seater giving rides, I'd eat ramens for a year to go up

    Wonderful but a pity there has to be a German flag on the tail instead of a swastika! Yes I know it's against the law to display any swastika in today's Germany

    Thank you very much for sharing that video, Paul. I did not know that there was a flying Messerschmitt 262.

    Thanks for posting that. 65 to 67 years later, and the damn things are still scary!

    Almost positively a repro, using General Electric CJ610 engines (i.e. Learjet engines).
    The only actual one from WW2 on Wiki's list that is being worked on to fly is owned by the Flying Heritage Collection, Everett, Washington, US.
    However, their webpage makes no mention of a Me.262.
