Dornier Do 335 (VG+PH) was captured by American forces, and flown to Cherbourg, France and shipped to the USA. The aircraft was assigned to the US Navy for tests and evaluation, between 1945 to 1948. After tests, the Dornier was put into storage In 1961 it was transfered from the Navy to the Smithsonian, and remained in storage for years. In October 1974 the aircraft was returned to Dornier in West Germany for complete rebuild After its restoration, the Dornier was put on display in the Deutsches Museum Munich, West Germany for long term loan. The aircraft was returned to the USA in 1987 and is on display at the National Air & Space Museum, Washington D.C. Did You Know... The Dornier Do 335 was restored at the Dornier Oberpfaffenhofen plant, and many of the employees working on the restortation worked on the same plane, during the war.
