The cockpit and fuselage was damaged by an explosion set of by the Germans, but there are plans to recover more parts of the aircraft. Who knows, may be it can be the start of a resurection of a genuine Luftwaffe operated W 34? Are there any other W 34 parts surviving?

13 July 2006 Just returned from some vacation in Europe, among other things I visited Flying Legends Air Show at Duxford - which was really, really great! (as usual! ;-). I've added a photo of the now air worthy Buchon C.4K-102, G-BWUE which made one of its first public displays.
12 June 2006 Brad Smith has visited Pima Air & Space Museum and taken photos of the Fi 103A-1 now on display there and a German designed solid fuel RATO unit also on display there. Can anyone ID the two different types of RATO units currently listed in the /engine/rocket/ section?

Thijs Lepstra Sent in photos from RAF Museum Cosford one of a previously unlisted missile which looks very much like a EMW C2 Wasserfall but much smaller. Can someone ID it? The second photo is of another solid fuel rocket, also of unknown origin (at least to me). For the time being I've added this engine to the other unidentified RATO units. Ok, who will be the first to correctly identify these entries!? Thijs also added a photo of a BMW 003 engine at RAF Museum Cosford.

Thank you both for these additions and challenges!

It was found in a barn (yes it possible to do such discoveries still!). On the aft section of the frame the small triangular ID plate is still attached how ever it is hard to make out the W.Nr. with any certainty, but it looks like it is W.Nr. 2200 or 2299.
