    He219A-7 wrk nr 310193, built late in the war. The finish is RLM 76 (pale blue) undersides and sides, with RLM 75 (medium gray) uppers with an RLM 76 pattern superimposed. The fuselage cross is gray/white. It appears that an explosive charge was detonated in the cockpit before the airfield was evacuated (LEMB, 1st pic is a new find)

    "Heinkel He219 production was centred on the company’s Vienna-Schwechat plant in Austria with fuselages coming from the Mielec factory in Poland. After the war the main airfield remained littered with wrecks of various airframes and these pictures were taken some 18 months after hostilities had ceased. Among the components is the tail of the V-3 prototype, the main wing for an He 219A-7 still in its jigs, and the incomplete fuselage forthe V-28 development aircraft, VO+BC, still on its wheeled transporter."

    Vienna was the development plant for the He 219 where they built prototypes and many of the 0-Series, by mid 44 the main/serial production was largely taken-over by the Rostock-Marienehe plant.
