Germany - Air Force
Messerschmitt Me-163B-1a Komet
Dayton - Wright-Patterson AFB (Wright AFB) (DWF) (closed)
USA - Ohio, August 19, 2013
Remark
Photographer
191095 (cn 191095) Production Komets were not ready for operational use until July 1944 and only 279 had been delivered by the end of the war. The sole operational Komet group, JG 400, scored nine kills while losing 14 of its own aircraft. This example never flew and was most probably deliberately sabotaged by the French forced labourers that built it. The hulk was restored by the Canadian National Aviation Museum and acquired by the National Museum of the USAF for display in 1999.

Messerschmitt Me-163B-1a Komet
Ottawa - Rockcliffe (YRO / CYRO)
Canada - Ontario, September 19, 2014
Remark
Photographer
191914 / 26 (cn 191914) This Komet was delivered to JG/400 in 1945 but captured intact at Husum and sent to the UK for testing. It was shipped to Montreal as a war prize in 1946 and subsequently placed into storage in a number of different locations. It underwent restoration by staff from the Canada Aviation & Space Museum during 2000-2001 and is now on display wearing JG/400 markings once again.

Messerschmitt Me-163B-1a Komet
Dayton - Wright-Patterson AFB (Wright AFB) (DWF) (closed)
USA - Ohio, April 16, 2014
Remark
Photographer
191095 (cn 191095) "National Museum of the US Air Force" The rocket propelled Komet could reach speeds unattainable to any other aircraft taking part in WWII but engine unreliability, very little range and limited ammunition made it an ineffective fighter. The displayed example was built by French forced laborers and sabotaged in the process; it never took flight. [Nikon D800 / AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm]

Messerschmitt Me-163B-1a Komet
Everett - Snohomish County / Paine Field (PAE / KPAE)
USA - Washington, May 30, 2013
Remark
Photographer
191660 / 3 (cn 191660) "Flying Heritage Collection" One of the few non-airworthy aircraft of the FHC, if you disregard the fact that as a semi-glider, it would still be operable as such. But given the fact that the Komet cost more pilots lives than almost any other aircraft during its active service in WWII it might just be as well that this "rocket" doesn't fly anymore. [Nikon D700 / AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm]

Messerschmitt Me-163B-1a Komet
East Fortune
UK - Scotland, April 23, 2013
Remark
Photographer
191659 / 15 (cn 191659) One of the real stars of the superb Museum of Flight. The Komet was a rocket powered interceptor aircraft with a performance far better than any allied aircraft of the time though it was hampered by a very short flight time. It entered service in May 1944. The wheeeled undercarriage dropped away on take-off with the aircraft landing on a skid in a similar way to that which most gliders do.
