    I can't get to see this, my company's "Websense" program won't let me.
    But, I grew up near Glenn L. Martin aircraft company, and I remember in
    1944 they were testing three German aircraft against US aircraft. I saw
    a bf109 and a fw190. I never did find out what the other plane was.
    These three aircraft were traveling around the US (with escorts) for
    different manufacturers to "play with". Wish I'd had a camera....

    Wow, good find. I wonder how it felt to climb into a rocket-powered bomb.

    Unfortunaly it was scrapped some years later. It is of interesst that this Ju 290 A-4 was actually flown to the states, unlike most other captured planes which were shipped.
