The slogan on the plane reads: "Verkaaft's mei Gwand 'I foahr in himmel! (Sell my Clothes I'm going to heaven!)."
This plane was part of an unit flying top cover for an unit of Messerschmidt Me 262 jets. Allied planes patrolled near the airfield, attacking the Me 262 jets during take off and landing, when they were most vulnerable to propeller driven Allied fighters.
The photo is probably from early to mid May 1945 as this plane was scrapped shortly after that.
