Me 163B 191095 at the Air Force Museum

Straight view from the left side, looking over the wing. The skid is completely retracted, and the tail wheel has compressed completely too. This makes the aircraft's attitude a little different from that of an operational Komet, which has the skid a notch lowered and the tail up in the air.
