Undoubtedly one of the fastest aircraft designed in Germany during World War II. I share with you tons of photos of the Dornier Do 335, including rare color images, in flight and many others, some never before seen by me, including photos with Allied markings. One question, had entered into service and produced on a large scale, what its impact on the war? What do you think? Visit the link below, see all the photos and answer the poll.

Dear Pampa

Is this turbo prop technology. I know the Germans had foo fighter jets and a more mainstream jet being produced near the end of the war.

My high school Physics teach (O A Schmidt) worked with Von Braun (A Nazi despite what the US said) and when he came to Canada he worked on the Avro Arrow which would have been the best jet around but Canada scrapped it and the US ripped off some things which did not appear till 15 years or so later.

The also built a flying saucer.

Now normally I don't regard late war German projects as being particularly significant for various reasons. I do think however the Do335 was a good aeroplane. I'm not sure what impact it might have had - it's difficult to say because we're dealing with a collapsing Third Reich and the whole idea of one design somehow making a huge impression is counter to their situation, and funnily enough, quite resonant with their own ideals. Germany desperately searched for a war winning weapon, unlike the allies who saw improvement as the way to go. German aircraft design often dwelt on clever technological ideas that were fine in theory but hard to make work. Take gun turrets, my usual example. The Germans failed to design a good one. The Allies simply used whatever ramshackle turret that worked.

So, the Do335 had some potential as a warplane. It just came along at the wrong time.
