German Jets and V1 & V2 Flying Bombs
Stunning footage of the first combat jet aircraft, the Me 163 and the Messerschmitt 262. Heinkel’s pioneering efforts and his pre-eminent He-280 are acknowledged, the Komet is shown in flight (scary!), and the A-4 rocket receives plenty of coverage, especially the complex launching procedures. The Me-163A, the most radical aircraft of the war, reached a speed of 623 mph, when released from a bomber. Me-163B pilot Schubert shot down 2 B-17s in one sortie, and some of that gun camera footage is shown.
