Right after the war, the allieds colected on an airway more types of german captured aircraft, in order to make flight demonstrations. No pilot was found to fly theMe262, and the idea that a german POW to fly it was consideered as an insult for the winners. In vicinity there was a romanian squadron which was equipped with Me-109G`s, so they were aquianted with german cockpits. One pilot was called and he made a flight.
