The center section of the Horten H IX V3 jet fighter is scheduled to transfer from the Paul E Garber Facility to the Mary Baker Engen Restoration Center at the Udvar-Hazy Center in late 2012. This in-progress condition map shows the types and extent of damage currently seen on the metal components, which needed to be documented prior to the transfer.  (modified Arthur Bentley drawing published in Shepelev and Ottens, Horten Ho 229, Spirit of Thuringia, 2006).
