Me 163B 191904 (Oldenburg, Berlin)

Nice overall view of the Komet on display. The camouflage of the aircraft is fairly representative of wartime Komets. Note part of the underwing Iron Cross painted on the flap, something rarely seen. The red pitot tube boom is also unusual, but it is very difficult to identify red parts on black and white photographs, so it could be realistic.
