Me 163B "White 05" of Erprobungskommando 16

This photo shows the aircraft probably some time after the capture of the airfield. The fabric of the rudder is torn, the trees have grown leaves, and apperantly many people walked around the nose of the aircraft! This picture again shows fine mottles on the tail. Vaguely visible are details of the wing camo pattern and markings.
