Opposed to that the pressure gauge has been omitted (protocol Nr. 4 of travel staff for desophistication of 3.4.1944).
The following points were discussed in todays inspection:

At the same time the company AGO will add two removable hand sized access holes in the upper fuselage cover, starting with the next contract.
c. Insulation of the connections which are unaccessible behind frame 1, will not be insulated. In front of frame 1 all connections points are to be insulated.
d. Prior to the installation of the tank the oxygen bottles have to be removed. Starting with the new contract AGO will install the 3 oxygen bottles on the cover in the lower fuselage shell in the same was as it is done with the Ta 152.
e. The DKP 2 has to be used as the switch in the left instrument panel.
f. The continuity switch as demanded by the test center has been installed on the throttle lever using the end moment switch 19-3830 B and is alright. FW will clarify availability.
g. The enrichement help 9-0-447 as developed by BMW touches the Kommandogerät oil return line. The mount for this line has to be lenghtened by 10 mm. BMW will do this.
