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

Have not seen a new question so:
The high ground is important in battle. Some hills have names for history's sake, but the military designates them with numbers. A reference to what?

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.
