Resolute to destroy the last hope of the Luftwaffe, the Me262. In April 1945 thirteen hundred USAAF bombers attacked the remaining Luftwaffe airfields. As the bomber stream headed for home a force of 50 Me262 which had managed to take off attacked them.

The Me262's streaming through the bombers firing their cannons were intercepted by the escorting P-51 Mustangs. A Mustang flown by Wayne Gatlin positions himself behind an Me262 which had infiltrated the boxed B-17's. Gatlin would down the 262 one of a few downed that day.
