Messerschmitt Me 262A

HyperScale is proudly supported by Squadron




This aircraft was flown by Oblt. Fritz Stehle, Staffelkapitän of 2./JG 7, (which was attached to Gefechtsverband Hogeback). On 8th May 1945, Stehle flew this aircraft from Zatec (Czechoslovakia) and surrendered to British forces at Fassberg.

While en route to Fassberg, Stehle is reported to have claimed the last air victory of the war with this aircraft, shooting down a Soviet P-39 flown by Lt. S.G. Stepanov, 129 GIAP (22 GIAD) at about 4pm.

Stehle claimed it as a Yak 9, (although some sources quote that it was Alexej Ivanjuk of 152 GIAP, flying a Yak).

As usual, prints and desktops are available at my website.

You may purchase these prints and see more of Jerry's artwork on his Virtual Aircraft Website
