The Me 262 parts will most likely be used in the Museum fur Verkher und Technik's long term project to recreate a Me 262 based on remains of W.Nr. 111006. The later has been included among the Me 262 on the website for the time being.

11 October 2007 To make up for my previous lazyness during September, here's another exiting update!

From Birger Larsen in Norway comes an update on the progress of Ju 88: The two Ju 88 fuselages being rebuilt in Hungary is nearing completion. October 5th a small ceremony celebrating the (near) completion of several years of work took place in Hereg, Hungary. Due to unforeseen delays in the rebuilding process, two- three weeks of work are still expected on the Norwegian Ju 88 W.Nr. 1203 before being returned to Norway. Still to be fitted are things like the bottom gondola, bottom tank cover and tail wheel doors together with some minor parts. Upon arrival at Bodø, Norway the Norwegian museum team will then make the Ju 88 complete with all internal details. Next planned step on the way to a complete aircraft will be the rebuilding of the tail plane and fin. The Berlin Ju 88 W.Nr. 714628 is to be completed with internal details and equipment at Hereg before being transported to Germany.

Bengt Hermansson shared a photo showing the progress of the restoration of the cockpit section form He 111H-6 W.Nr. 7155. Internal equipment is being fitted.
