Arado Ar 234B-2 Blitz (Lightning), (Werknummer 140312), F1-GS, USA 50, Wk No. 505, Reg. No. 27, USAAF T2-1010/FE-1010, restored as F1+GS.  This aircraft was one of nine Ar 234s surrendered to British forces at Sola Airfield near Stavanger, Norway.  The aircraft had been operating with 9. Staffel III./Kampfgeschwader 76 (later reorganised as Einsatzstaffel) during the final weeks of the war, having operated previously with the 8th squadron, carrying the full-four-character Geschwaderkennungmilitary code of "F1+GS" on the fuselage sides, with the wing code of "F1" painted on in a much reduced size for "low-visibility" requirements.  This aircraft and three others were collected by the "Watson's Whizzers" of the USAAF to be shipped back to the United States for flight testing.  The aircraft was flown from Sola to Cherbourg on 24 June 1945 where it joined 34 other advanced German aircraft shipped back to the U.S. aboard the British aircraft carrier HMS Reaper, arriving at Newark, New Jersey on 28 July.  Upon arrival two of the Ar 234s were reassembled (including 140312) and flown by USAAF pilots to Freeman Field, Indiana for testing and evaluation. 140312 was assigned the foreign equipment number FE-1010.  After receiving new engines, radio and oxygen equipment, 140312 was transferred to Wright Field near Dayton, Ohio and delivered to the Accelerated Service Test Maintenance Squadron (ASTMS) of the Flight Test Division in July 1946.  Flight testing was completed on 16 October 1946 though the aircraft remained at Wright Field until 1947.  It was then stored until transferred to the Smithsonian Institution.  Restoration was completed in 1989.  National Air and Space Museum, Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, Washington Dulles International Airport, Chantilly, Virginia.

Dornier Do-335A-02 Pfeil (Arrow) (Werknummer 240102), VG+PH.  FE-1012.  This aircraft was assigned factory radio code registration, or Stammkennzeichen, of VG+PH.  The aircraft was assembled at the Dornier plant in Oberpfaffenhofen, Bavaria on 16 April 1945.  It was captured by Allied forces at the plant on 22 April 1945.  VG+PH was one of two Do 335s to be shipped to the United States aboard the Royal Navy escort carrier HMS Reaper, along with other captured German aircraft, to be used for testing and evaluation under a USAAF program called "Operation Sea Horse".  VG+PH went to the Navy for evaluation and was sent to the Test and Evaluation Center, Patuxent River Naval Air Station, Maryland.  Following testing from 1945 to 1948, the aircraft was placed in storage at Norfolk, until donated to the Smithsonian in 1961.   In October 1974, VG+PH was returned to the Dornier plant in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany for a complete restoration.  In 1975, the aircraft was restored by Dornier employees, many of whom had worked on the airplane originally.  They were amazed that the explosive charges built into the aircraft to blow off the dorsal fin and rear propeller prior to pilot ejection were still installed and active 30 years later.  The aircraft was on display in the Deutsches Museum in Munich until 1986 when it was returned to the Smithsonian.  National Air and Space Museum, Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, Washington Dulles International Airport, Chantilly, Virginia.

Ta 152H-0/R-11 (Wk. Nr. 1500010), coded CW+CJ, "Green 4", JG301, USA 11, Reg. No. 32, T2/FE-112, with the NASM.  This Ta 152 is the only existing example of this fighter in the world today.  The British recovered “Green 4” in Aalborg, Denmark, at the end of hostilities.  They turned the airplane over to “Watson’s Whizzer’s, an American unit charged with collecting Luftwaffe aircraft for further study.  Lt Harold McIntosh flew ‘020 to Melun, France, where it was loaded aboard the British aircraft carrier HMS Reaper and shipped Newark Army Airfield, New Jersey.  From Newark, McIntosh flew this Ta 152 to Freeman Field, Indiana.  The airplane was later transferred to Wright Field, Ohio, to undergo extensive flight testing as Foreign Equipment number FE-112 (later changed to T2-112).  After testing, the Army stored the aircraft and then turned it over to the National Air Museum in 1960. 

Research conducted late in 1998 may have revealed the airplane’s true identity as Werk-Nummer 150010, not 150003 or ‘020 as has been widely reported.  This places the airframe toward the end of the range of pre-production H-0 models, a variant marking the transition from the Ta 152 prototypes to full production Ta 152H-1 airplanes.  It was probably built at Focke-Wulf’s production facility at Cottbus, Germany, in December 1944, and delivered to Erprobungskommando Ta 152 at Rechlin, Germany, for service testing.  As with most Ta 152s produced, ‘020’ was apparently transferred to Jagdgeswader (fighter squadron) JG 301 in early 1945.  A Green ‘4’ was painted on the fuselage and this may have been the squadron identification and radio call sign “Green 4”.  The aircraft has a wooden tail and only (Wk. Nr. 150003) and (Wk. Nr. 150010) were fitted with this and on historical photos the overpainted remains of the code CW+CJ is visible which belongs to (Wk. Nr. 150010).  (Wk. Nr. 150020). was coded CW+CT.  Data courtesy of Peter W. Cohausz.  National Air and Space Museum, Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, Washington Dulles International Airport, Chantilly, Virginia.

Nr. 120222).  This aircraft is stored with the National Air and Space Museum, Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, Washington Dulles International Airport, Chantilly, Virginia.  This aircraft was one of thirty-one JG 1 aircraft manufactured by Heinkel at Rostock-Marienehe and captured by the British at captured at Leck, Nordfriesland, in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany on 8 May 1945.  It was painted with the number White 23, and its red-white-black nose bands were in reverse order from the usual paint scheme, which may indicate that the wing commander and high-scoring ace, Col Herbert Ihlefeld, flew this particular aircraft.  After transfer to Britain, the US Army Air Forces accepted the airplane and shipped it to Wright Field, Ohio, for evaluation. It received the foreign equipment number FE-504, later T2-504, and was later moved to Freeman Field, Indiana.  For unknown reasons, mechanics replaced the tail unit at Wright Field with the tail unit of aircraft Wk. Nr. 120222.  FE-504/T2-504 was apparently never flown.  Its flying days ended permanently when someone at Freeman Field neatly sawed through the outer wing panels sometime before September 1946.  The wings were reattached with door hinges and the jet was shipped to air shows and military displays around the country.  The US Air Force transferred the aircraft to the Smithsonian Institution in 1949 but it remained in storage at Park Ridge, Illinois, until transfer to the Garber Facility in January 1955.  National Air and Space Museum, Steven F.
