Toward the end of the war, several Doras in the 500xxx production block received the metal tail surfaces of the Ta 152 series. Two aircraft are so documented, this aircraft, 500647, and 500645. Othwerwise, these aircraft were conventional Dora 9's, with standard markings and armament. This aircraft served with the 7th staffel of JagdGeschwader 26. It was discovered by Canadian troops at Hustedt airfield in mid-April 1945, abandoned by the retreating Germans.
