This Volksjäger was built at the Heinkel-Nord plant in Rostock-Marienehe, Germany around late Feb. or Mar. 1945. It was captured from the Luftwaffe at Leck on VE Day and shipped to the UK the following month to be exhibited as a war trophy in Hyde Park. The plane was shipped to Canada in Sep. 1946 and placed into storage by the RCAF. It was acquired by the Canada Aviation & Space Museum in 1967 and is on display unrestored giving this exhibit a real sense of history and gravitas.
