Me 163B 191904

The fuselage of Komet 191904 in a hangar at Oldenburg air base. It can be seen that the Komet has been repainted completely since on display at St. Athan. It now sports a typical wartime camouflage, with the center fuselage camouflaged solidly, and both nose and tail covered in dense mottles. The code number '25' is now in white (was yellow), and a 2. Staffel badge has been applied. The tail is covered, possibly to cover the swastika.
