I found this and thought some of you might find it interesting. From the T-2 AMG Techniical intelligence ME 262A-1 PILOT'S HANDBOOK by F.D. Van wart, 1st Lt., Air Corps release date 15 July 1946.

It is full of neat things about the Me262 and such, I just did a quick look at it and this stuck out, anyway enjoy.
