Klaus Mietusch

Klaus Mietusch was born on 5 August 1918 at Posen. After completing his flying training he was transferred to 2./JG234, which was later redesignated 2./JG26 on 1 September 1938. On 23 September 1939, Leutnant Mietusch was transferred to 7./JG26. He participated in the Battle of France but, on 8 June 1940, was shot down in his Bf 109 E-1 (W.Nr. 2746) by a RAF Hurricane fighter near Neufchatel. He force-landed behind French lines unhurt, but was then shot in the buttocks by a French civilian. He became a prisoner of war of the French. He was released at the fall of France. Reunited with 7./JG26, Mietusch gained his first victory on 31 May 1940, when he shot down a RAF Hurricane near Dunkirk. By the end of 1940, he had added a second victory and been promoted to Oberleutnant. In January 1941, 7./JG26, under the leadership of Oberleutnant Joachim Muncheberg (135 victories, RK-S, killed in action 23 March 1943), was relocated to Sicily. Mietusch gained three victories over Malta before 7./JG26 were briefly deployed to participate in the assault on Yugoslavia. Mietusch gained a single victory over Yugoslavia on 6 April 1941, when he shot down a Fury biplane over Podgorica for his sixth victory. Redeployed over Malta, Mietusch added a further three victories, including a notable RAF ace. On 13 April, Mietusch attacked a Hurricane that had attacked four Bf 109s and shot it down for his eighth victory. The Hurricane was flown by Flying Officer E M "Imshi" Mason (15.4 confirmed and 3.6 damaged victories) of 274 Sqn, RAF who ditched his stricken aircraft in the sea having suffered wounds to his hand in the aerial combat and a broken nose in the ditching. Mietusch also saw combat over North Africa gaining a single victory in the battles around Tobruk. By September, 7./JG26 was relocated back to the Channel front. On 19 September 1941, Muncheberg took command of II./JG26 following the death in aerial combat with RAF Spitfire fighters of Hauptmann Walter Adolph (25 victories, RK) the day before. As a result Mietusch became Staffelkapitan of 7./JG26. On 19 August 1942, he shot down two RAF Spitfire fighters over the Allied landings at Dieppe for his 20th and 21st victories. Hauptmann Mietusch led 7./JG26 to Russia in February 1943 where it replaced I./JG54. The Staffel was based at Krasnogvardeisk-Gatschina, west of Leningrad. From the end of February until June 1943, when 7./JG26 was sent back to the Western Front, the Staffel shot down 63 Russian aircraft. Mietusch himself gained 15 victories during this period. However, on 20 March, Mietusch suffered engine failure on take-off from Gatschina in Fw 190 A-4 (W.Nr. 7147). The aircraft turned over and was destroyed. As a result, Mietusch was out of action for two months. On 18 June, Mietusch downed five Russian fighters (38-42).

On 5 July 1943, Mietusch became Gruppenkommandeur of III./JG26. He recorded a victory over an USAAF B-17 four-engine heavy bomber on 25 July, the first confirmed victory of 16 four-engine bombers he was to shoot down. His 50th victory was a B-17 shot down over Cambrai on 20 October. On 8 March 1944, the 8th Air Force, USAAF raided Berlin. Mietusch claimed a B-17 Herausschuss as the bombers made their way to Berlin for his 60th victory. However, when attempting to attack the withdrawing bombers, Mietusch was shot down in Bf 109 G-6 (W.Nr. 162 032) "Black 21" near Meppen by the USAAF P-47 fighter escort. He baled out and landed safely but had suffered injuries destined to keep him in hospital for the next few weeks. He was awarded the Ritterkreuz for his 60th victory on 26 March 1944. He received promotion to the rank of Major in April. While landing at Rouvres-Etain on 12 April, Mietusch's Bf 109 G-6 (W.Nr. 162 345) "Black 24" hit a bomb crater and overturned. He suffered injuries that put him back in hospital for three weeks. Mietusch shot down a USAAF P-38 twin-engine fighter near Chartres on 4 July to record his 70th victory. On 17 July, Mietusch was shot down in Bf 109 G-6/U4 (W.Nr. 440 640) "White 20" by an RAF Spitfire. He baled out but did not return to his base until the next day. He was promptly sent to hospital in Germany. Mietusch was engaged in combat with USAAF P-51 fighters on 17 September 1944. After gaining his 75th, and final victory, he was shot down and killed in Bf 109 G-6 (W.Nr. 441 646) "Black 25" in the vicinity of Rath-Aldekerk by the American ace, Lieutenant William Beyer (9 victories) of the 376th Fighter Squadron of the 361st Fighter Group, USAAF. He was posthumously awarded the Eichenlaub (Nr 653) on 18 November.

In 452 combat missions Klaus Mietusch gained 75 victories. He gained 60 victories over the Western Front including 13 four-engine bombers. He was wounded several times and was shot down ten times.
