Messerschmitt Me 163 Komet

  • Jack Bradshaw
  • Interview by: Julian Hales


We were about in the Lille area,

just tooling along at 38 thousand,

when an enemy 163 came through us.

He was probably came down from 45 thousand.

Came right through the squadron,

and about 30 seconds later

came right straight up through it.

Boy, I mean, we scattered all over the place.

He didn't have any guns.

We saw no fire on the windscreen,

so it was probably just a test flight

or a flight that they were making,

and he just thought he could scare us.

And he did.

But it was amazing

because he came through doing

about probably 650 miles an hour

and there was nothing we could do about him.
