Very expensive but by all accounts the definite Me262 history.

Did anyone buy it (or at least one of the 4 volumes). Was it worth it and what information is inside ? I've a feeling it'll be a touch heavy on the technicalities, charts and statistics to make it a good read but I can't find a thorough review of the series anywhere to help me decide.

S!,
Any fan of the me262 should be required to get this set books. It has so many tidbits that the entry price makes the books well worth it. It does have lots of technical data (which I really appreciate), but it also has some interesting insights about flying the me262 and its prototypes.

All in all, I highly recommend this series. You could do a lot worse /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I have one and three. They are, as you say, definitive. The first has a very detailed history of development plus a rundown ( and extensive images ) of every prototype.
Particularly strange are the early prop-powered test frames.

Indispensible books to a true 262 fan.

Vol. 3 has part of the Pilot's Operating Instructions (L.Dv.T-2262 A-1 and A-2). That is where I take my 262 info from.

Another book has Fritz Wendel's note on flying the 262.

This book is about the National Air and Space Museum's restoration.
