It would be great to see those things star in a quality WWII movie some day.

Am I alone in thinking that the 262 is one gorgeous looking aircraft?

I wonder why we dont have at least 2 me262s randomly (on ex. every 2nd mission) in online wars (maybe in CW)?? I mean if we want to be historical....btw It wasnt impossible to kill a me262 for me..at least if it is flown by average pilot (which most of the guys are)...

Hi,

There were some shots in one of the aviation mags of this 262. One, in particular, showed it flying in formation with a B24 (IIRC). The German pilot of the 262 said it was ironic to be flying alongside the bomber as the last time he saw one, he was a kid and that it was trying to bomb his house!

Ta,
Norris

These jets are built not too far from where I live. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/34.gif it's really nice to see them do this and wish they would build many more and other aircraft that deserve this kind of treatment. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Kewl!

I cant wait to see one of those in an air show!

a little OT, but just another example of CFS3 bone head moves towards realism.. Before CFS3 came out they were going on about how they are sparing nothing to make it *real*! One of thier pro-mos of realism was showing the MS CFS3 team heading out to where they are making these Me262s. In the pro-mo the MS teams says, we are going out of our way to make it real.. So much so that we went here to capture the *real* engine sounds of a Me262.

Well, as most of you know, just about every aspect of those new Me262s are to blue print! So much so that Messer gave these guys continuatiion serial numbers to use where they left off at in 45! But, the only thing on these new Me262 that is not build to blue print are the engines! They are modern jet engines off a small comercial jet liner. MS could have drove to the nearest airport and obtained the very same sounds from a modern jet! So much for MS know how when it comes to spending money wisly on a flight sim! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

______________________________________________
Contrary to popular belief, the 004A was a fairly sound performer when premium steels were used, and early versions were known to achieve a 200-250 hour service life. However, the diversion of critical materials into U-boat production and other projects late in the war forced Junkers to produce the 004B model with only 1/3 of the high grade steel that had been used in the 004A. It was to be a disastrous concession for the Me 262.

Very interesting! 200-250 hrs of service life, while for ex. La7 had only 50 hrs of s.l.

What a beautiful bird. I've never really understood why it acquired the name Swallow though.

Yes I realize that swallows are agile and fast but they are also prey. I'd have called it a Kestral which are also agile, fast and like to snack on Swallows.

I'd sure like to see those at a nearby airshow.

The Germans called it "Silver Bird", the name "Turbo" was also used by it's pilots.
The name name "swallow" started to appear after the war.

The Jumo jet engine: When put into series-production in 1944 it was used for 10 flight ours before being overhauled.
At the end of the war the engines had 25 flight ours before being checked.

Swallow is still a predatory bird as they feed upon flying insects like mosquitoes. Its just which tier of the food chain you are talking about.

I actually think the trainer/nightfighter configuration is even sexier than the regular Swalbe/Sturmvogel. Very sleek and elegant.
