Me163 displayed at The Museum of Flight East Fortune Scotland U.K. and RAF Museum Cosford under restoration
The only rocket propelled interceptor ever to be used operationally, the Me163 Komet was deployed by the Luftwaffe in a desperate attempt to combat the Allied strategic bombing offensive during the closing stages of the Second World War.
The Me163 stemmed from a research programme conducted during the late 1930s and flight trials of the first powered prototypes began at the Peenemunde West rocket test centre in the latter months of 1941. Although the Me163's Walther rocket motor endowed the aircraft with a maximum speed far in excess of any other fighter of the period, the volatile reactants employed often caused the aircraft to explode.
The sole Luftwaffe unit to become operational with the Me163 was Jagdgeschwader (Fighter Wing) 400. Tasked with protecting the vital Leuna oil refineries near Leipzig, Me163s from this unit first engaged Eighth US Army Air Force B17 Flying Fortresses on 16 August 1944. By the end of the war nine Allied aircraft had been shot down by JG 400; however, severe fuel shortages and technical problems hampered operations and the unit suffered heavy casualties. Limited by its short range, lack of endurance and unreliability, the Me163 represented little more than a futile, if ingenious and courageous, attempt to wrest control of the air over Germany from the Allies.
With the opening of the new BMW Museum nearing, one of the iconic BMW vehicles of the past is presented in Geneva: the BMW 328. Karl Baumer explains how the BMW 328 is a representative of intelligent leightweight eingineering since BMW´s early days, and draws parallels to BMW EfficientDynamics. With a win in the lengendary Mille Miglia race in 1940, the 328 Touring Coupé has written history and has been an early showcase for BMW´s driving dynamics and pioneering engineering alike.
Built in 1914, the Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum is located in the Kom Tong Hall, originally the residence of Ho Kom-tong, the younger brother of the Hong Kong's magnate Robert Hotung. Being a typical Edwardian Classical building, this four-storey building has the facade surrounded by the Greek-style granite columns. Inside the premises are preserved the stained-glass windows, balcony wall tiles and staircase railings in good condition. The Kom Tong Hall is among the best-preserved buildings dating back to the early 20th century Hong Kong.
Apart from its majestic appearance, Kom Tong Hall was among the earliest residential buildings constructed with reinforced concrete structure and fitted with concealed electrical wiring in Hong Kong. It sets an important milestone in the development of building construction.

I visited this special museum this weekend and really enjoyed it. The inside of the building has many many oil paintings on exhibit and I went here to see a rare Italian Oil Painting collection. Somewhere around the years of 1500 or so. I went with a good friend Pam and created this video after seeing all the sites. It's a very impressive Oklahoma Musem.
