Me 163B 191095 at the Air Force Museum

Close-up picture of the left side of the fuselage. Despite its past as a derelict gateguard this Komet is remarkably complete. The red dashed line around the cockpit is not seen in wartime pictures, and the reason for it is unknown to me. The RLM 76 painted skid in not typical either, it is usually black or dark grey.
