I had to put in at least one print of a 262 since one of my old friend flew one. He was Hauptmann Vincent Werner Hoffmann and in total flew 903 missions in WW2. Vince was highly decorated winning the Knights Cross / German Cross in Gold / Gold bomber bar with penadant and much more. He was shot down four times and ended up in Russian captivity for 5 years. He eventually escaped from Russia and walked back to Germany.

The Messerschmitt Me 262 Schwalbe (English: “Swallow”) was the world’s first operational jet-powered fighter aircraft. Design work started before World War II began but engine problems prevented the aircraft from attaining operational status with the Luftwaffe until mid-1944. Compared with Allied fighters of its day, including the British jet-powered Gloster Meteor, it was much faster and better armed. One of the most advanced aviation designs in operational use during World War II, the Me 262 was used in a variety of roles, including light bomber, reconnaissance and even experimental night fighter versions.

Me 262 pilots claimed a total of 542 Allied kills
