The "Volksj├Ąger" (or "People's Fighter") was designed and built in just 90 days. The aircraft suffered as a result of this rushed development, many problems caused by the top-mounted jet engine. Small power increases at low altitude tended to pitch the nose into the ground, and an ingenious ejection seat mechanism was necessary to avoid the pilot's ejecting seat firing him into the engine intake. This example, in the Imperial War Museum, is one of only seven remaining aircraft.
