    YES, this link works. Not sure why it's being labeled this way

    It's been real quiet since they first discovered the wreckage. It would be interesting to know what's going on with the search for the remaining parts and what's happening as far as any restoration.

    I tried googling Garrison Museum to see if they had any updates and I wasn't getting any good results.

    I did notice the article linked above has a minor flaw, though:
    Which is not quite accurate, that distinction goes to the He280, and test pilot Helmut Schenck was the first person ever to eject (13 January 1942), saving his life during a catastrophic failure of He280V1.

    The intention of the text is most likely "the first production aircraft with ejection seats"
