The high altitude test plant at Oberwiesenfeld/Munich is believed to be the finest in the world ... It is strongly recommended that immediate steps be taken by interested parties to instruct re-opening of this plant. In view of the apparent lack of full performance test data on German jet engines, it is suggested that the 003 and 004 be tested in the chamber as a first step. The adjacent Oberwiesenfeld airfield would make it convenient to fly in Allied engines for test
