Messerschmitt Me-262 ''Schwalbe''

Alvaro L.
The Messerschmitt Me 262 Schwalbe (German: "Swallow") was the world's first operational turbojet fighter aircraft. It was officially named Schwalbe because the swallow, when in a dive, is one of the fastest birds known. German pilots nicknamed it the "Turbo," while the Allies called it the "Stormbird". #262 #Aircraft #Airplane #Fighter #Galland #Jet #Luftwaffe #Me #Me262 #Messerschmitt #Schwalbe #Slat #Stormbird #Turbo #Turbojet #War #World #WW2 #WWII
