Vintage planes when they weren’t vintage

Thanks to my friend Tom for finding this bit of history and knowing that I would like it.

The air show in this video took place in 1945 at Freeman Field in Seymour, Indiana, only four months after the German surrender and just one month after the Japanese surrender. All kinds of captured Axis aircraft, including, according to my friend, a German Arado 234 and a DO-390. (I will admit that unless there was a Revell or Monogram model of a plane, I probably can’t identify it.)
