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 the Me 262, 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.

from what I see here, Romania might have flown their own variant of a Me 262 during the war
