The Heinkel 162 is (to me, Bill Coffman) one of the most attractive aircraft to come out of WW2. However it was apparently under developed and a bitch to fly. It is too bad that the example in the Rockcliffe Museum has been in semi-storage unassembled for so many years, but I suppose that it has little significance in terms of Canadian aviation. This example was apparently flown by the RAF in June of 1945 in a series of test flights for a total flight time of 90 minutes. It has therefor probably been re-painted.
