    Hi,

    Was wondering if any of you Luftwaffe experts can help in identifying this German jet? and the airforce base it was taken at?
    Brought back home by a Jewish soldier, British-Palestine army.

    Thanks,
    Neil.

    Thanks Martin.

    Looking closely at the photo, the back has some sign, and can make out only that it has 2 lines: E.....VALE
    PA........TION

    Possibly some sort of RAF Station? also a damaged British fighter...
    One can see that the paint was taken off the plane, can see a faint swastika on the tail of the jet...

    Does this help in locating the base it was taken at?

    Neil.

    It is a Me 163 Komet, and you can see English on the sign on the building behind it, and parts of a Swastika remains on the tail, and to the right you can see a British spitfire also.

    I would say it was a captured Me 163 Komet, and was being going over by British, or American military officers.
