Aut cum scuto aut in scuto
Is that a current example? The photo looks to good to be taken 75 years ago.
I saw a flight of 4 of these in US livery come in for a landing at Wiesbaden AFB in the early 60's. Quite the thrill. The German Museum in Munich has one that you can get right up to the cockpit and peer in. Thank God Hitler was such an idiot.MfG!Goetz

Intimidating as hell. But if it’s a modern one, I hope they upengined from those unreliable Jumo 004s.
oh you bet.cj610/j85 turbojets.much more better...
Awesome, can you imagine being a tail gunner in a B-17 and seeing that?
My father was a combat glider pilot...on the jump "over the Rhine" his fight was buzzed by a 262... Nobody then knew what the hell it was.
Look at that front end. It's perfect for sharks teeth.
You took the words right out. That thing looks like a great white coming right at you.
Great minds - was thinking the same thing - Call it Bruce!
Looked it up, it's called a killer shark. Here's more:https://www.google.com/search?q=me+262+shark&tbm=isch&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwit5eT0qKHuAhVc_qwKHTjWAIEQgowBegQIARAa&biw=1903&bih=975
Twenty minutes flight time. U.S.airmen just followed them back the the airfield and shot them down on their approach.
Risky, the approaches to the 262 bases were heavily defended with flak batteries.
If Germany could have waited until they had several hundred of them, the war would have ended far differently. Same with U-boats and air-independent propulsion.
