Here is a collection of some of our favorite Me 262 and/or Luftwaffe-related resources on the World Wide Web.  If you know of others that we have overlooked, drop us a line and we'll add them to the list.

These links were last updated/validated on January 2008.


Many of the historic aircraft mentioned on this site can be seen elsewhere on the web. Here are a few of the organizational sites that are worth a look:

The National Air & Space Museum The world's leading aviation museum and home of a beautifully restored Me 262A-1a/R7, the former 888.   Follow this related link to the Garber Facility at Silver Hill.

The United States Air Force Museum A truly world-class military aviation museum and home of a Me 262A-1a, the former 111.

Planes of Fame Ed Maloney's renowned air museum was for decades the home of the only Me 262A-1a (formerly /U3) in a private collection, the former 444. Note: Although we have retained this link, the aircraft in question was sold to another collector in the fall of 2000. More details to follow as we have them.

The Air Victory Museum The Air Victory Museum is an educational organization dedicated to inspiring today’s youth through the technology and achievements in aviation history.


For in-depth coverage of Me 262 development, combat service and/or unit histories, we highly recommend the latest titles from our colleagues at Classic Publications (UK).

Ruy Horta's 12 O'clock High Discussion Board is, without a doubt, the historian's best single-source interactive resource for general Luftwaffe issues.  When it comes to the men and machines of the Luftwaffe, 12 O'clock High is simply the most active, the most comprehensive and the most respected discussion forum on the World Wide web.
