The first recorded combat ejection

Leutnant Otto Fries (pilot) and Feldwebel Arthur Staffa (radar op) were in an He219 of II./NJG 1 and were caught near Florennes by a 605 Squadron Mosquito flown by Wing Commander N V Starr, the squadron CO. They both ejected successfully. In 1945 they were again caught by a Mossie (F/L K.D.Vaughn of 85 Squadron) and again ejected. Both survived the war. Source for this story was Otto Fries, then (late 1970s) a doctor in Berlin.
