Fitted FuG 218 Neptun radar, and designated ‘Red 6’. with IV./JG11, this aircraft was surrendered to RAF and allocated USA 3 (not USA 2 as is often stated), and named "Ole Fruit Cake". After being shipped to the US, it received serial FE-610 (later T2-610), and at some time the aircraft was renamed as "Der Schwalbe". It is reported to have been at the grounds of Cornell university, but no traces are left of its stay there. It was eventually scrapped circa 1950.
