Me 262 A-1a/U3 (W.Nr. 500453) is now the property of the Flying Heritage Collection, in Arlington (state Washington). At the end of the war, the aircraft was captured by the Americans at the Lechfeld base in Germany and received the designation T-2-4012 (resp. FE-4012). He was transported from Europe to the USA on board the ship HMS Reaper. At Wright Field, it was later used for comparative tests with an American fighter aircraft P-80 Shooting Star. Between May and August 1946, the aircraft made eight flights lasting 4 hours 40 minutes. The tests were then terminated due to low engine life. The aircraft in the pictures carries the camouflage of the machine Me 262 A-1a "white 9" (W.Nr. 111617), which at the end of the war operated in the group 10./EJG 2.
