Dornier Do 335
  A very unconventional aircraft, the Dornier Do 335 Pheil (Arrow) featured an engine in the nose and one in the tail. The basic design of such an aircraft was patented in 1937 by Dr Dornier, but the 335 never flew until 1943.  It is notable that the Do 335 was the first  production aircraft to feature an ejection seat!  The aircraft pictured below is the Do 335A-6 two seat night fighter although this particular example is not fitted with the radar antennae.
   Work on the Do 335 progressed slowley through the latter years of the war, and by VE Day, only 60 had been built, and only 20 had seen any combat. They were very heavily armed, and ammuniton was carried in large numbers in proportion to the guns used.

Type: Single Seat day fighter and Twin Seat night fighter
Engines: Two Daimler Benz 1,900hp inlines
Armament: One 30-mm and two 15-mm cannon
