United States Army Air Forces Me 163B FE500 / T-2-500

Unique view of the right side of 191301, and a very nice overview of (part of) the display. The aircraft in the foreground is a Ju 290 transport. Details of the Komet itself are difficult to distinguish. The mottling pattern on the fuselage and tail can be distinguished, and the Balkenkreuze on the fuselage and wing (vaguely) are visible. The wings are painted in a dark colors. It appears that the gun bay (wing root) panel on this side is original.
