Three this week.
When the war had ended in Europe, the U.S. Army Air Forces Intelligence Service, as part of "Operation Lusty" (LUftwaffe Secret TechnologY), took control of three He 219s at the Grove base of the 1st Night Fighter Wing (Nachtjagdgeschwader 1) in Jutland, Denmark starting on 16 June 1945. These aircraft were made flight-worthy by "Watson's Whizzers" and flown to Cherbourg, France. They were then shipped to the United States with 21 other captured German aircraft on board the British escort carrier HMS Reaper, and was reassembled at Ford Field, Newark, New Jersey.
Below at a British controlled airfield in Germany. The number ‘FE612’ was applied by the British with ‘FE’ standing for ‘Foreign Equipment.

Below FE-612,He 219 A-5 prototype Werknummer 290060.pictured at Freeman Field Indiana.The fate of Werknummer 290 060 is unknown.
