There was a very good reference site for (almost) everything around Me-262 called "stormbirds.com". Unfortunately something bad happened to it and because of copyrights or else, all the visual information disappeared. There was a page dedicated to stenciling and it still exists, but no photos have been saved:Hi All,
Could someone tell me (or point me in the right direction please) for a list of codes which were painted on the yellow triangles to tell ground crew what Fuel or Oil etc should go into each filler.
Many Thank in advance
I don't recallnthe tank's capacity, but I'm sure it was enough for several starts.Although that raises the question of how much of the "20 TL Benzin 1 TL Oel" was used in the ignition process. Was it a one shot on the ground deal? If the turbine did not fire-up the first time did they have to refill the fuel/oil reservoir for another try? Or did the engine turbine fire-up so reliably that the small reservoir was not an issue?
