if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

I believe that particular plane came from the Ed Maloney collection at the Chino Air Museum and was in fairly poor condition due to the large amount of high-strength steel used in the original manufacture of the 262's airframe. Steve Hinton told me that they let it go due to the amount of heavily corroded structural steel that would need to be replaced in order to be refurbished, most likely requiring significant financial resources to do well. Paul Allen had those resources, lol. I have personally checked out one of the original turbines, and they were built very well considering the lack of alloy resources needed under the circumstances. Hey, I even got to check out in detail the workings of a Komet rocket motor. Very ingenious indeed for early liquid rocket motor technology.
