Messerschmitt Me 262 [Part 1]
We do? At the Aviation Museum? For all the Scout launches we've done out there, I haven't actually been inside in 8 or so years...We have #150243 in Virginia Beach. It’s quite a sight watching a period correct ME-262 in flight. These new birds are certified by Messerschmitt and their serial numbers are a continuation of the original numbering scheme.
Those aren't the stats for the Meteor Mk. 1, which was the version in service during WW2. The Mk. 1 could only do 410 mph (660 km/h). So on stats, the Me 262 wins.I know which one LOOKS more bad azzed, but which one would prevail in a dogfight?
Meteor has the edge on speed and service ceiling.
Armament? Manueverability? Skill of pilot?
