The Heinkel He 162 "Salamander" jet-powered fighter. It arose from a desperate "Emergency Fighter Program" design competition. It fought in 1945 but, no matter how advanced their weapon systems, the war had the Germans fighting against most of Europe and both the USA and the Soviet Union. It had a predetermined outcome. Realistically they never had chance, a matter of simple logistics and numbers.

The Heinkel He 162 Volksjaeger (German, "People's Fighter"), the name of the project of the Emergency Fighter Program design competition, was a German single-engine, jet-powered fighter aircraft fielded by the Luftwaffe in World War II. Designed and built quickly, and made primarily of wood as metals were in very short supply and prioritised for other aircraft, the He 162 was nevertheless the fastest of the first generation of Axis and Allied jets.

Many of Germany's captured new and experimental aircraft were displayed in an exhibition as part of London's Thanksgiving week on September 14, 1945. Among the aircraft are a number of jet and rocket propelled planes. Here, a side view of the Heinkel He-162 "Volksjaeger", propelled by a turbo-jet unit mounted above the fuselage, in Hyde park, in London.
