    Yes, the WWI hall is superbly presented.

    Nick, the museum actually have two Me-262's. The other, a two-seater "Schwalbe" ("swallow"), is painted up in German colours.

    Below is a list of places where Me-262's can be viewed. I am not certain how up to date the list is though - if planning a visit, do check beforehand:

    Mnchen, Deutsches Museum.

    Berlin-Gatow, Luftwaffenmuseum.

    Hi Gunny, yes, as I mentioned the list was not an up to date one - quite possible the example at Berlin was moved elsewhere I suppose.

    Thanks Dan, fantastic display there

    The WHOLE aircraft hall with it's interactive displays and dark hanger-like atmosphere is great - and "G for George" is a sight to behold!

    Note our Me-109G hanging from the ceiling behind ( on a post actually ) .......bloody brilliant!

    Sorry Carl, I didn't mean to hijack your thread ... I just love plane museums

    Cheers, Dan

    So nice to see these aircraft in such wonderful condition. Care, financial support and effort by the bucket load for sure, but well worth it to preserve them for future generations.
