DB+127 On display at the Luftwaffenmuseum. Attached is the disposable Rocketdyne RS-B 202 rocket accelerator that was used for the Zero-length launch (ZeLL) program tests. Successful ZeLL launches were made by an F-104G of Jagdbombergeschwader 31 (JaboG 31) Boelcke at Edwards AFB in 1963, followed by JaboG 32 at Lechfeld. The idea was to launch an interceptor after airfields were destroyed in a nuclear attack. In 1966 the Luftwaffe decided not to make ZeLL operational. (more of DB+127)

The strake on the fan cowl, grills for the precooler heat exchanger on the engine pylon and leading edge slats 1-5 are visible. (more of VT-CIH)

40-2344 One can imagine Lt Col Jimmy Doolittle’s B-25B tied down to USS Hornet and being armed in this diorama at the Nat. Museum of the USAF. Launching 10 hours earlier and further away from their targets then intended on 18 April 1942, the 16 B-25s left an indelible psychological impact as the first raid on the Japanese homeland. Fifteen aircraft barely reached China and one the Soviet Union on the most daring one-way mission. All 80 airmen were awarded the DFC and Doolittle received the Medal of Honor. (more of 40-2344)

DH+DE Wreckage of a Taifun at the Luftwaffenmuseum with the Argus As 10c inverted V-8 engine visible and some traces of dark blue paint. Thought to have been built in Regensburg in 1939, its registration could also be DA+DE, DR+DE or DH+BE. It may have been part of Jagdfliegerschule 3 (JFS 3) based at Stolp-Reitz. Or it is from 2./JG 103 based at Parow, as a Taifun was shot down from above over Ruegen on 14.12.44, as bullet holes indicate. It was recovered in Nov. 2009.

N2203 On display at the Museum of Flight. This replica is Bestellnr. 535/17, likely from Jasta 6 as per its markings. The original triplane would have flown with Jagdgeschwader 1 comprising of Jagdstaffeln 4, 6, 10 and 11. The first fighter wing of the Luftstreitkraefte was created in June 1917 and commanded by Rittmeister Manfred von Richthofen, the only logical choice. Along with the famous red triplane of the ace, a number of colourful aircraft made up the Flying Circus, as it was referred to by RFC pilots. (more of N2203)
