    Anyone knows if it uses the original engines or some modern replacement?

    No, I've read, there are only three Me262, and one with Jumos in USA.


    This should be one with Jumos:

    Unfortunately, no original engines (2x Jumo 004 B-2 (2x 8.9 kN (910 kp)) were available.

    Instead, 2x General Electric GE CJ-610-9 (2x 13.8 kN (1,406 kp)) were installed.

    Wouldn't be a good idea to fly a 262 with original Jumo engines.

    They had a terrible reliability record... wouldn't have been used in normal circumstances except the Germans were desperate.

    The British Rolls Royce jet engines of the time were much more reliable, but were held back for quite a long time past when they could have been used in combat to make sure they were decently reliable.

    Quite a few notable German pilots died in 262 crashes which were primarily due to the Jumos failing, among them Walter Nowotny, the pioneer Jet Ace.

    A jet powered Rolls Royce sounds quite fun. Maybe I should get mine converted.

    Your jet or your Rolls Royce?
    Or both?

    I dont think the Germans were desperate more a lack of raw material to build turbojet engines i think they used alum coated steel in stead of high temps metals like cobalt, nickel, not sure if titanium was used back in 40s for fan blades.i wonder what happen to the BMW jet engine for the Me262 i thint it was heavier than the Jumo 004

    I took a picture of this beauty back in 2010 on the ILA in Berlin Schönefeld. It was impressive to see this fish flying

    It was the time when the A380 was brand new...
