    I got to visit the Silver Hill facility when I was a teenager back in 1969. Many of the planes I saw back then have now been restored. I remember seeing the Do-335 sitting on the lot, but they had not started to restore it yet. There was also a storage crate with He-219 painted on the side. I remember seeing a Me-262, Me-163, P-47, Fi-156. I also remember being shown a Me-109 and a Spitfire which were in the process of being restored.

    I have about ten shots of that plane 'somewhere' if anyone wants them.
