Wwhere is the ME262? I got to work on and fire up an engine off of a 262 when I got my A&P certificate, it's a Jumo 004. One of the interesting things on the engine is the nose cone on the shaft moves in and out depending on the fuel flow, more flow means higher speed and the cone moves out to keep the intake air under mach for a constant smooth flow

Since that 262 appears to be a two-place model, it's probably one of the batch of 5(?) of new 262s manufactured at the heritage aviation operation at Paine Field, in Everett, Washington. I believe that only one had a two-place cockpit.
I read that a 262 was borrowed from the Naval Aviation Museum (Florida?) for replication, possibly in exchange for the restoration of that original plane. The project was completed as noted in Everett. We have occasionally seen a 262 in the air in the Seattle region; probably test flights. I am sure that some internet research will reveal the full (and correct) story.
We still often see Urals around the Puget Sound. A fun place to live.
