Me 262 Schwalbe
The Me 262 'Schwalbe' or Swallow is the first ever operational jet fighter developed by Messerschmitt for the Luftwaffe in 1941 to 1944. About 1450 where build in a few different versions (two seater, night fighter, light bomber etc.) Needless to say both allied and sovjet forces took great interest in captured examples. A myriad of information can be found at the Wikipedia page about the Me 262.
