Seldom color footage from near the end (most likely April 1945) of World War 2, in Europe. U.S. gun camera footage of an American fighter (most likely a P-51 Mustang) firing at a German Messerschmitt Me 262 jet fighter.
Several hits are seen on the wings and then on the tail of the Me 262, which appears to accelerate, while emitting smoke. It is then seen with its right engine smoking heavily. It is again attacked and apparently shot down. Another scene shows attack against a German fighter (Possibly Messerschmitt Me-109 or Focke-Wulf Ta 152?).
If you have more information to the German Me-262, Me-109 (or FW Ta 152) or the U.S. Fighter, we would appreciate any information. If you would like more rare color footage in the future and plenty more war history video content, subscribe to our YouTube Channel.
