“First Encounters” 18×36”, oil Copyright Steve Anderson ASAA 2017
 

“I made my first test flight in the Me-262 in June of 1944…It gave me a wonderful feeling of effortless speed and power.”

…Lt. Karl “Quax” Schnorrer, Kommando Nowotny

Armed with a quartet of 30 mm cannon in the nose and speed in excess of 500 mph, the Messerschmitt Me-262 proved to be a formidable opponent. In the Fall of 1944 the 262 pilots started to gain some momentum while test flying and evolving combat tactics for the best way to use the advantages of the Me 262 for attacking heavy bombers. First encounters with the new jet by escort fighters were hit-and-miss as the Allied pilots tried to counter the threat. One P-47 pilot was heard to say, “My God, what was that?”
