Messerschmitt Me 262 A-1a

White 1 of of 7./EJG 2, and later JV 44, Flown by an unknown pilot to Insbruck-Hötting/Austria, 2 May 1945

This was one of 12 Turbos that landed on the civilian airstrip at Insbruck-Hötting, almost hitting the aerodrome buildings when landed.

This runway was then determined to be too short for a Me 262 to take off, so all of the jet-fighters where stuck and subseqently abandoned.
