Deutsches Museum Me 163B

Detail view of the right rear fuselage. It shows the holes cut into the fuselage to show the Walter rocket engine. I guess you have to know it's there, otherwise you would not know. A Swastika on the vertical tail is of course lacking in politically correct Germany. Strangely, even in its flying attitude the tail wheel appears completely compressed. This is typical for all museum Komets.
