W.Nr. 500647, 7./JG 26, Hustedt Airfield, Germany, February – April, 1945
This aircraft was discovered by the allies at Hustedt near Celle, where it was abandoned by JG 26 on February 10/11, 1945. The aircraft carries typical camouflage, in which it came out of the third and final D-9 production run at Mimetall. The upper fuselage was sprayed brown, RLM 81 (with the exception of RLM 82 applied ahead of the tail unit), while the side and bottom surfaces were painted RLM 76. The wing was sprayed by the sub-contractor in fields of RLM 81 and RLM 76. Sections of the wing bottom could have carried a spray of either RLM 81 or RLM 66.
