Arado Ar 196A-5 (Wk. Nr. 623 167), coded PO+HG, later coded T3+BH of Bordfl Gr 196, which served aboard the German cruiser Prinz Eugen, which became a War Pirze in 1945, Philadelphia Navy Yard.  This aircraft is in storage with the National Air and Space Museum (NASM), Steven F.

Nr. 623 183).  Also from the German cruiser Prinz Eugen, currently with the National Museum of Naval Aviation (NMNA), at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida.   The upper fuselage and canopy were damaged during transit, and it remained in storage awaiting restoration. In December 2012, it was packed into containers and shipped to Nordholz, Germany. Restoration began in August 2013, in time for that city's celebration for 100 years of German naval aviation. The plane, on long term loan from the National Naval Aviation Museum, will eventually be displayed at the Naval Air Wing 3 (Marinefliegergeschwader 3) headquarters at Nordholz Naval Airbase.

Arado Ar 234B-2 Blitz (Lightning), (Wk. Nr. 140312), coded F1+GS, USA 50, 505, Reg. No. 27, restored coded 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.  This aircraft was assigned the foreign equipment number FE-1010, later T2-1010.  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.  This aircraft is preserved in the National Air and Space Museum (NASM), Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, Washington Dulles International Airport, Chantilly, Virginia.

Udvar-Hazy Center, Washington Dulles International Airport, Chantilly, Virginia.

    Dornier Do-335A-02 Pfeil (Arrow) (Werknummer 240102), coded 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.  This aircraft is preserved in the National Air and Space Museum (NASM), Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, Washington Dulles International Airport, Chantilly, Virginia.

Nr. 1500010 in Aalborg, Denmark, at the end of hostilities.  They turned the airplane over to “Watson’s Whizzers", 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.  This aircraft was assigned the foreign equipment number FE-112, later 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.  This aircraft is stored in the National Air and Space Museum (NASM), Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, Washington Dulles International Airport, Chantilly, Virginia.

    Grumman J2F-4 Duck (Serial No. V-1640), downed in a storm on a Greenland glacier on 29 November 1942.  The United States Coast Guard worked with North South Polar, Inc. plans to recover this J2F-4 Duck.  Two Coast Guard airmen were lost along with a rescued U.S. Army Air Forces passenger from a downed B-17 searching for a downed C-53 with five on board.  The three men of the Duck are presumed to still be entombed at the site.  North South Polar, under the auspices of the Coast Guard team, located the aircraft in August 2012 resting 38 feet beneath the surface of the icesheet.  As per the mandate of Title 10 of the U.S. Code, North South Polar, the Coast Guard and the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command plan to recover the men's remains for proper interment.  The Coast Guard and North South Polar are also developing plans to recover the aircraft and restore it to flying condition as a memorial to the aircrew.

    General Motors production of the Wildcat later switched to the improved FM-2 (based on Grumman's XF4F-8 prototype, informally known as the "Wilder Wildcat") optimized for small-carrier operations, with a more powerful engine, and a taller tail to cope with the increased torque.

    Heinkel He 162A-2 Spatz (Sparrow),Volksjager (Wk. Nr. 120230), coded White 23, 1/JG1, painted (Wk. Nr. 120222).  This He 162A was captured by the British at Leck and sent to the US on board the escort carrier HMS Reaper.  It is currently fitted with the tail unit from (Wk. Nr. 120222).  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 USAF 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.  This aircraft is stored in the National Air and Space Museum (NASM), Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, Washington Dulles International Airport, Chantilly, Virginia.

    The Ventura was very similar to its predecessor, the Lockheed.  The primary difference was not in layout; rather, the Ventura was larger, heavier, and used more powerful engines than the Hudson.  The RAF ordered 188 Venturas in February 1940, which were delivered from mid-1942.  Venturas were initially used for daylight raids on occupied Europe but like some other RAF bombers, they proved too vulnerable without fighter escort, which was difficult to provide for long-range missions.

    Mitsubishi A6M Zero (Serial No. 3852).  Owned by the Flying Heritage Collection in Everett, Washington.  This aircraft was recovered from Babo Airfield, Indonesia, and restored, first in Russia, then in California, and finally in Washington state, before being delivered to the Flying Heritage Collection.  It has a P&W engine installed.

    Mitsubishi A6M Zero (Serial No. 4043).  In storage at Fantasy of Flight in Polk City, Florida.  Along with several other Zeros, this aircraft was recovered by the Australian War Memorial Museum in the early 1970s from Rabaul in the South Pacific.  The markings suggest that it was in service after June 1943 and further investigation suggests that it has cockpit features associated with the Nakajima-built Model 52b.  If this is correct, it is most likely one of the 123 aircraft lost by the Japanese during the assault of Rabaul.  The aircraft was shipped in pieces to the attraction and it was eventually made up for display as a crashed aircraft.  Much of the aircraft is usable for patterns and some of its parts can be restored to one day make this a basis for a flyable aircraft.

    Cavalier P-51D Mustang (Serial No. AF-67-22580), "Six-Shooter", Reg. No. N2580, Chuck Hall, Ramona, California.

    The Cavalier Mustang was a post-Second World War civilian-modified version of the North American P-51 Mustang.  Although originally intended as a high speed personal aircraft, the Cavalier was also exported for use as a fighter and close air support aircraft to third world air forces.  To construct the Executive Mustang, Trans Florida purchased military surplus P-51s.  The airframes were completely disassembled, the military equipment stripped out, and then rebuilt with a second seat, new avionics, plush leather interiors, luggage bays, and civilian paint schemes. 

    Cavalier F-51D Mustangs included nine single control (F-51D) and two dual-control (TF-51D) aircraft.  They were given new serial numbers ranging from 67-XXXXX to 68-XXXXX. Nine (including two TF-51s) were given to Bolivia under a program called Peace Condor and two, with tip tanks, were sold to the US Army for use as chase aircraft, one of which is preserved at the Air Force Armament Museum at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida.

    During the Second World War, the demand for the Vought F4U Corsair fighter soon overwhelmed Vought's manufacturing capability, resulting in production by Goodyear and Brewster. Goodyear-built Corsairs were designated FG and Brewster-built aircraft F3A. From the first prototype delivery to the U.S. Navy in 1940, to final delivery in 1953 to the French, 12,571 F4U Corsairs were manufactured, in 16 separate models, in the longest production run of any piston-engined fighter in U.S. history, from 1942 to 1953.
