    Me 262,best looking airplane of ww2 and very much fastest. Germany put this into production earlier they win the war.
    Greetj g from Russia.. ❤️

  3. This thing was in development from beginning of the war but it was kinda side hustle because they wanted to develop it after total victory which as we know never happened. Hitler wanted bombers and was pissed when Messerschmitt told him it's jet. Imagine if Hitler wasn't such a megaloman obsessed with bombing of USA. It this was priority it would be much more developed and could potentially change outcome of the war. Luckily it never did.

    And they only swept the wings to deal with a weight balance issue or something. Woops! That turned out to be a really big dealio

    From the sounds it makes, it seems they put in some modern fanjet engines. So much better than the first 262 reproductions that used CJ-610s. Which were terrible fuel hogs. 400gph per side. Those new engines are probably around 75gph. Maybe less. Although the loud jet noise the old engines made was nice to hear. Pure turbojets

    Germany was so advanced its amazing

  15. Victor Contreras says:

    Wonderful plane! Though I'm Mexican, I am very proud to have a German aunt through marriage. This jet is just one example of their brilliant minds. What impressed me is that it's not so damn noisy even on takeoff!
