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

A cover scan of Flugzeug magazine, which contains a cover story called 'Alles Kaputt', discussing the Allies taking over of many Germany aircraft for experimentation and testing. It reports the photo was taken at the 'Dayton Air Fair'. Unfortunately the Komet is not visible in the photo, either it just outside the camera's viewing angle on the left, or it was not parked there yet. The FW 190 with USAAF stars and bars is visible beneath the wing.
