Me 163 Walkaround

The Me 163 has been a part of the exhibition at Gatow Luftwaffenmuseum for years, but it used to be exhibited in a separate room.

Now, it’s hanging from the ceiling which creates a much more dramatic effect.

Enjoy the pictures.

  1. Ulf: Thanks for all the great pictures. Yout walkaround pictures are of great interest to me, and to anyone interested in Luftwaffe aircraft. Thanks again.

  4. Hi Ulf. The Germans showed you can make an egg shaped aircraft fly!
    These restorations are expensive but worthwhile I believe. The machines of war provide a venue for discussion. Young people can relate better to what happened when they see artefacts. The footage of ME-163 s climbing are spectacular at best. I wonder how many G’s the pilot took.
    Thank you.
