HistoryEdit

Built by Focke-Wulf at Sorau,[2] and test flown by Focke-Wulf's chief test pilot at Cottbus on 3 December 1944,[3] 150003 was captured intact by the British at Langenhagen in 1945,[4] before being passed to the United States as FE-112.[5]

NotesEdit

  1. Research conducted late in 1998 may have revealed the airplane's true identity as Werk-Nummer (serial number) 150020, not 150003 or '010 as widely reported. This places the airframe toward the end of the range of pre-production H-0 models, a variant marking the transition from the Ta 152 prototypes to full production Ta 152H-1 airplanes.[1]
