|This exhibit is a result of one of our early
recoveries, fall into 1986-88. This was a Ju 88 crashlanded in peat moor between Horni
Halze (Oberhals) and Kovarska. The plane was totaly destroyed during the crashland on
early mooring fog. The four airmen crew was killed on impact.
Not more than a half mile away from this plane crashed some months later the B-17 42-97806 of Lt. Baker (see in section 3, room III.)
Me 262 - part of the JUMO 004 and the Me 262 experimental external fuel tank
|On 5th Anniversary of the Museum, 13th September 2003 we get an unusual gift. This was about 1/3 part of the JUMO 004 engine, which powered Me 262. This great exhibit was donated by Mr. Roman Juricka from Cheb, CZ who saved it from the threat of scrap salvage. It after the war it was used in a high technical school as an education aid, but it was longer abanonded. This is a middle part of the turbine in great condition, contains many manufacturing stamps and also a penetration by US 0.50 caliber ammo.||
