    The "Spatz" had an ejection seat.

    The Me163 should have had one, but didn't although there is word that an engineer had been designing one for the Komet.

    The He280 jet had the first ejection seats and a Heinkel test pilot was the first pilot to use an ejection seat, successfully ejecting from a He280 prototype during an emergency. The He219 also had ejection seats.

    Unlike the He162, which used an explosive type system, the He280 and He219 used a compressed air system.

    Id. german aircraft - Page 34 - Axis History Forum

    "I have to correct myself. This is He 162 A-2, WNr.120077, Red 1of II./JG 1, FE/ T2-0489.
    This must then be 1947 at University of Kansas in Lawrence, USA.
    Already in 1948 it was sold to a collector in Kansas City. This plane is now at the Planes of Fame Museum, Chino, CA"
