Over head view of the Heinkel He162 "People's Fighter" that was assigned to I./GJ.I aircraft were captured by the British at Leck Airfield
Germany, May 1945. The British, French, Russian and US Forces tested the He163 after the war to gain as much information about wartime German jet technology.
One 163 is now on display at the Planes of Fame Air Museum, Chino California USA, the name on the fuselage side reads "Nervenklau" Nerve Stealer
