The most complete reference of its kind on the World Wide Web


We are pleased to offer this extraordinary new resource to our fellow historians, researchers and aviation enthusiasts worldwide.  We are confident that you will find it to be one of the most useful and comprehensive research tools on the World Wide Web.  Never before has this information been accessible via the Internet.  

The pages that follow provide an unprecedented arsenal of information on the Messerschmitt Me 262 series aircraft ... the world's first operational jet fighter.  




The site brings together a unique collaboration of resources, including an in-depth study of werknummer production blocks, and a fully-searchable werknummer database. 

The latter contains more than 1,550 entries for the Messerschmitt Me 262, and is by far the most complete document of its kind known to be in existence in the public domain.  

All told, the WNRC represents more than 50 years of cumulative research by a host of leading archivists and historians.
