I really don’t give this list all that much credibility,
The ME 163 Komet was very nearly as dangerous to the pilot as to the bombers it was supposed to attack, far too short range, no landing gear, and ready to blow up at anytime during refuelling right through to flight, the only time it was safe was when it was on the ground and empty - so long as the fuel lines had been purged. More aircraft were lost in landing accidents than they shot down - how the hell was that one not on this list.
The credibility of this author goes down the toilet further and faster when you look at the list of best aircraft, just how is the Spitfire, or P51 not on it, or the ME109, or the Sopwith Camel.
Their conclusions that the ME262 might have been the best of its day are deeply flawed, because this is largely based on what might have been, and not on what happened. Their ideas seem to be based around the idea that it was severely hampered by airfield raids of allied fighters, so what? That just means the tactical used of intruders by the allies was better managed, and don’t forget that Allied pilots soon found ways to deal with them, not letting them get airborne was one, but quite a few were shot down in air to air combat, and there were never enough, didn’t have enough range.
