2013 Aug 18: Mitsubishi A6M Zero / 零式艦上戦闘機 | Flickr - Mitsubishi zero owned by PLANES OF FAME is displayed at Tokorozawa Aviation Museum. This flyable zero is the last one that has original Sakae Engine.
The ME262, the first jet fighter. This amazing aircraft was so far ahead of its time. It could almost reach supersonic speed and contained an automatic cannon. Since it was close to the end of the war when it came out and the Germans we so short of materials, it really was a death trap and many pilots died. Much of the interior was made of wood because so many materials could not be found. The fuel was incredibly explosive and yet this plane still lead the way for all modern fighters today.
