    Captured and coded FE116, T2-116. Believed to have been surrendered to the USAAF at Neubiberg, an airfield south of Munich and later ferried to Cherbourg for transfer to the USA by HMS Reaper. This aircraft was in flyable condition at Freemen Field from May to August 1946. It is reported to have been scrapped later.

    if it was surrendered at neubiberg then there might be a pic of it on bud andserson's site or one of the various 357th sites...as that is the field they occupied. i will dig and see if i can come up with anything else on it...

    Nice! It's a shame that it, and many others (like that Taifun), weren't saved.
