    [font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON Apr-18-02 AT 01:33PM (EDT)[/font][p]NICE PICS! But ermm uh the um the ME163 was the first fighter jet then the 262. If that jet behind the 262 is a 163 your right. The 163 was actually more dangerous to the pilots than to the bomber crews in WWII. BTW wasn't the HE-162 also one of the first?

    Both the Me163 and the Russian thing are rockets...not jets. The 163 was used quite often in the final year of the war...1945. The Russian thing (B-1?)never saw meaningful action...one of Stalin's side show projects...like the glider tank. The Me262 is, of course, a jet's jet.

    The ME163 was a rocket engine powered airplane (the thing had wings). It was very prone to exploding during ignition and take off. It was ment to be an interceptor (very high rate of climb) and brakeup the B-17 formation.

    Your right about the 163, I forgot, lol. Say wasn't the buzz bomb capable of reachigs altitudes on the edge of space? or was that the Paris gun?(WWI)Blake

    The Paris Gun...one of the top 10 engineering efforts of all time in my opinion, was capable of throwing it's shell into the very upper reaches of the stratosphere...then to plunge down on its target over 75 miles away. Very advanced stuff for 1918.

    I stand corrected too...the Me163 is a rocket PLANE. I fly 'em in CFS2 all the time...they were bad news for bombers, for sure. But as mentioned, prone to explode without notice. The 99% pure Hydrogen Peroxide component of the fuel was extremely dangerous, capable of literally eating a man's flesh and bones away. The Me 163 pilot sat surrounded by several tanks of the stuff. As also mentioned, the Me 163 did kill more Germans than Allied airmen.

    The "buzz bomb" or V1 was a rocket engine powered missile (bomb) and flew at relatively low altitudes and speeds. The Spitfire pilots could actually catch them and tip them over into open fields (out of harms way). The bomb made a buzzing sound and hence the name. It would be launched on an angled rail. The V2 was a rocket missile and launched verticaly. It was much faster and it could reach the upper atmosphere and come down pretty much straight. The protection against this one was to get the hell out of the way. It did take a bit of a toll on London.

    Very nice shots of the ME163 (I like the second shot a lot). And as you mention... you had a chance of getting killed real easy by your own machine.
