    Hi

    I don´t know if most of you heard or read something about it, but a good news is always a pleasure to tell.

    The second of the newly-made Me262 - and the first to be a single seat - just made its roll-out (in May, 2005). Look how beautiful it is:

    curious why they painted it so grey ? It's bogus like the two seater camo JG 7 bird. It is wonderful to be sure to get these babe's up and running

    They already flew both the single seat and the dual seat, and they crashed the single seat one if I remember right!

    I think they're repairing it, but i don't think they'll be selling any.

    they have not flown the single seater. the dual seat trainer joke cracked up and still has not gotten back to flying condition. There are enough parts of 6 me 262's to put at least 4 a/c together and whether or not they will fly is up to the refabricators and engine techs

    So the crash didn't happen then? None were destroyed (and no one killed, of course. ;) )?

    the crash was due a fast landing speed and the damage resulted was the collapse of the landing strut, the wing was also damaged

    They used to have that video up on the Stormbirds site. Looked a little scary, but showed the skill of the pilot to keep it together.

    It's so clean, it looks like a kit...





    But, really amazing work though, I wonder how many man-hours there are in each one?

    JG 7 never had trainers. I'm into the historical accuracy bit and have since 1963. Very bad call on the original Seattle firm for this major goof up. The single seater as I said is in bogus camo.
