    Only one Ar234 survives today it was one of nine captured by British forces in Norway.
    Shipped to the USA for flight testing by the USAAF tests continued to 1946 when testing ended. Two Ar234s were tested in the USA, the fate of the other is unknown.

    The Ar234 remained at Wright field until 1947 transfered to the Smithsonian in 1949. Restoration work started in 1984 and was completed in 1989. The aircraft is marked with its first operational unit markings of 8./KG76

    Did You Know...

    The Ar234 is displayed next to the Do335 the
    same aircraft that it had been shipped with to the USA in 1945 both aircraft are back together sixty years later.
    The Ar234 is displayed with Walter designed liquid-fueled RATO rockets.
    These RATO rockets may be the only known surviving examples in the world.
