The Horten Ho 229 V3 from the aft. Comparing this newer image of the Horten Ho 229 V3 with historical photographs help conservators determine which coatings were added at a later date. Based on historical photographs, the blue/grey paint and swastikas were added at a later date and were not original to the aircraft.
