According this source: This aircraft was one of four Arado 234 sent to the US for evaluation and testing. Its original Werk Nummer is probably 140148, although some sources indicate 140343. It was acquired by the British at Sola airfield, near Stavanger in Norway, by 'Watson's Whizzers', a group of American pilots whose mission was to secure German jets, under the command of Col. 'Hal' Watson. The aircraft was flown from Sola to Grove, UK and then Melun, France where it was loaded on HMS Reaper and sent to the US. It was tested by the US Navy at Patuxent River NAS. However, it was not flown due to lack of spare parts and only used in ground tests. It was discarded by the Navy in the 1950's.
