In early 1942, the Luftwaffe issued competition calling for a long range bomber capable of striking targets in the U.S. east coast, primarily New York city. Messerschmit took parts in a competition with its Me.264 design. Other competitors were Heinkel with He.277, Junkers with Ju.390 and Tank with Ta.400. The original of the Me.264 design came from Messerschmitt's long-range reconnaissance aircraft project, the P.1061. Three Me.264 prototypes were ordered. The first prototype, the Me 264 V1, was flown on December 1942. It was powered at first by four Jumo 211J inline engines. In late 1943, these were changed to the BMW 801G radials. Trials showed numerous minor faults, and handling was found to be difficult. As the Junkers Ju.390 was chosen as Amerika bomber, the Me 264 was not abandoned however. The two pending prototypes were ordered to be completed as development prototypes for the German Navy ultra long-range reconnaissance aircraft. In September 1944, work on the Me.264 project was officially cancelled, as all the three prototypes were destroyed during Allied bombing raid.
