*Me 262 Debut!
Airport: Moffett Federal Airfield
Debut at Moffett Federal Airfield
May 18th, 2012
After over five years of restoration the Collings Foundation's Messerschmitt Me 262 will make it's first public debut on May 18th at Moffett Airfield. The 262 will be joining the national Wings of Freedom tour as the B-17 Flying Fortress, B-24 Liberator and P-51 Mustang make their way through the Bay Area.
White 1 has passed FAA's Phase 1 flight tests and is performing beautifully. After Moffett, we will have the aircraft at several Wings of Freedom tour locations on static display. Pilot training will be ongoing as we wait for FAA's LHFE (Living History Flight Exemption) moratorium to be lifted. - For more information regarding this moratorium click here. We hope the FAA will lift this moratorium in September 2012. At that point, we will re-petition the FAA for 262 flight exemption. If approved this would allow us to offer flight experiences in this legendary jet fighter.
Keep an eye on our national Wings of Freedom tour schedule for appearance updates and additional information.
