Do you mean operational jet or protoype? Operational is easy Messersmitt with the 262.
protoype might have been Heinkel though..the brits also had some protypes flyin in the war but nothing operational

The Germans stole the engine design from the British firm Rolls Royce. Not SURE when the UK first flew but I guess the Meteor was their first production jet (?) and flew before the 262.
