About the Print:
25 April 1945 - In an untouchable pursuit by the U.S. 8th Air Force P-51D Mustangs, Ens. Hans Guido Mutke accelerates "White 3", his trusted Me-262 to safety. Mutke would later claim that he was the first to break the sound barrier - in the Me-262.
About the Artifact:
May 1945 - 4-meter aluminum sheets from an Me 262 production line were removed by a fleeing Czech worker when German production ceased at the end of the war. Using a cart and horse, the sheeting was taken to the workers property and used as roofing material. This artifact was cut from one of those sheets in 2021, which still includes the original AWS (Aluminum Walzwerke Singen) manufacturer stamp.
