Re: Who dropped €3730 on this fake Me 262 eBay auction?

Photo is the proof of German anti gravity testing. Aircraft is siting on the nose wheel only as main LG seems retracted?

It is not the photo sold at eBay. The photo at eBay does not have any dent in the cowling.

To me the vegetation looks completely different. On one photo there is tall grass, on the other mainly soil.

I did the same mistake...

See other photos. The remaining two parts of the tricycle landing gear are usually hidden by the engines and upper part of the landing gear doors depending on the angle of view.

According to my increasingly unreliable memory the lightning flash marking was applied to Czech Me 262s after the War's end - not so much captured as inherited!

For sure that is only the pitot tube that is being mistaken for a canopy part.

The first production Avia S-92 had a similar lightning bolt...but not "exactly" the same.

Fake or not, whoever dropped €3730 on a photo probably needs psychological help...

There is also a benefit in such from time to time astronomical high auction results.
It is a motivation for some people to dig for old photographs and show us a scan for free...

My thoughts, Karl

Don't say that .. It's a friend of us ! The same who, recently, bought a Bf109K-4 picture at 1200 Euros
