He162

A German Heinkel He162 jet fighter attracts oo's and ah's
from onlookers at an Allied airfield on October 23, 1945.
Conceived, designed, and built in just 90 days, the so-called
Volksjäger, or "People's Hunter," was deployed late in the
war for the Luftwaffe's final defense of the Reich.
More information on the He-162 can be found here.
