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

Straight left side view of 191301, looking underneath the Me 262's tail and showing the FW 190 in the background. The mottling patterns on the nose and tail differ considerably in density and mottle size, something not often seen on Komets. In a worst case scenario this could mean that the tail does not belong to the rest of the aircraft. But it could also be the result of a two-man spraying job.
