History[edit | edit source]

Originally designed as the Me 155 high-altitude interceptor by Messerschmitt, 360052 was the second BV 155 Prototype. The aircraft was brought to England by the RAF and examined before being shipped to the USA. Initially designated by the USAAF as FE-505, later FE-218, and then T2-505, it is currently stored in the Smithsonian Institution's Paul E. Garber Facility, part of the National Air and Space Museum (NASM), Washington, D.C.[1]
