|Unit: ex Stab/JG 301
Serial: FE-112 (T2-112, ex 4)
The British recovered 'Green 4' in Aalborg, Denmark, at the end of hostilities. They turned the airplane over to 'Watson's Whizzer's', the US unit charged with collecting German aircraft for further study. Lt.Harold McIntosh flew the aircraft to Melun, France, where it was loaded aboard the British aircraft carrier HMS Reaper and shipped Newark Army Airfield, New Jersey. From Newark, McIntosh flew this Ta.152 to Freeman Field, Indiana. The airplane was later transferred to Wright Field, Ohio, to undergo extensive flight testing as Foreign Equipment number FE-112 (later changed to T2-112). After testing, the Army stored the aircraft and then turned it over to the National Air Museum in 1960.
