The french used quite a few ex Luftwaffe aircraft in the late 40s Glenn, FW190s, JU 88 and 188s to name a few, i'm not sure how many types they actually manufactured though.
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Excellent photos. Museum looks very void of people. Makes it much more enjoyable.
Wow, these are great pictures, I wish I'd known about this when I was in Munich all those years ago, I'm really sorry that I missed this. Thank you for sharing

Great pictures. I visited The Aviation Museum in Krakow and it was superb. It houses Hermann Goering's personal plane collection, which were originally housed their for safe keeping in WW2 but i understand now the German Government wants them back. Certainly worth a visit!
Speaking of rockets and such, here is a Rheintochter surface-to-air missile and its neighbor at the museum, the rocket-powered, missile-armed short-range interceptor Bachem Ba 349 "Natter" [= adder / viper], the latter an absolutely deadly weapons system. (At least for the pilot, at the sole manned test-flight.) The engine section was to be separated from the disposable front section, land by parachute and be re-used after recovery. Hence the notice on the tailfin, which translates as "If found, report to commandant's office, military training grounds Heuberg. Phone: Stetten am kalten Markt 222. Reward!"
Looks like something out of the Road Warrior.
