History[edit | edit source]

Operated by IV./NJG11 as Red 8,[1] and equipped with FuG218 radar, for use as a night fighter, 110305 was captured at Schleswig, and designated Air Min 50. Flown from Schleswig to Gilze-Rijen[2] on 18 May, and onwards to Farnborough on 19 May 1945 this aircraft was later re-serialed VH519.[N 1] Damaged on its first landing at RNAS Ford, the aircraft was quickly repaired. This aircraft is currently on static display in the South African National Museum of Military History, Saxonwold, Johannesburg, South Africa.[3]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. British Military Aircraft Serials 1912-1966 lists the Werk Nr for this aircraft as 500210, which was incorrectly assigned to the future Air Min 52.
