  1. This Me.262 landed in Switzerland at Dübendorf airfield, triggering the need for swiss jet aircraft. Hence the FFA P-16 swiss-built fighter which gave its wing to the Lear Jet business jet. My new book about P-16 “P-16 – Prototypes suisses d’avions à réaction : N-20, Lear Jet, Piranha” is available on http://www.aviapic.ch/cart and on http://www.secavia.ch, the publisher’s website. The book is in french. The above video really looks like the real thing, when H.G.Mutke flew his Me.262 over Switzerland !
