Photo Comment

A magnificent exhibit, stunning. This aircraft was captured by the RAF in Leck in Germany towards the end of WWII. it was evaluated by the RAF and assigned the British serial VN679 in November 1945. Due to the shortage of metal towards the end of the war, the aircraft was built largely of wood.
