Iron Birds fly again

A group of historical flight enthusiasts are flight testing the first of five Me 262's that they're building. This Messerschmitt design was introduced near the end of WWII and was the first practical operational jet fighter.

Thanks to Transterrestrial Musings for the pointer.

Thanks for pointing this out,Ted.I first saw this bunch after they where mentioned on the Scale_Aircraft group at Yahoo which I moderate.I haven't checked on them in about a year now.It really would be great to see these flying.
I'm a big fan of the 262.I have one of the old Monogram models on my shelf right now.The only thing it needs to finish it is the canopy.Been hoping to find some of the paint pens to do my canopy frame with.Oh the burden of living in a town with nothing in it.
Now if you go to the Stormbirds link and then follow the MODELS link there are some really,really cool turbine powered R/C birds there.I knew someone had to have them but I had just never seen one.
