East Fortune Me 163B 191659

Nice view of the right cockpit area. The canopy still looks very clear after 55 years! The whole airframe has retained the less-then-smooth appearance of a wartime Komet, and hasn't suffered from a smoothing 'restoration' job. The aerial nicely shows the stencilling "Nicht Anfassen" ("Do not touch"). If you look closely you can see that the hinges are broken.
