The Life of Hans Guido Mutke

Hans Guido Mutke was a German Luftwaffe fighter pilot during World War II. Mutke was born on March 25, 1925 in Neisse, Upper Silesia now known as Nysa, Poland. He was married and was blessed with two children. Hans Guido Mutke was also a gynecologist. He finished his medical training in Berne and Zurich. After the World War II, he returned to Germany and worked with his chosen profession, gynecologist until he retired. Hans Guido Mutke died in Munich while undergoing a heart operation. He donated his body to Gunther von Hagens.

Hans Guido Mutke was called up when he was still in medical school. He spent three years as a night fighter reconnaissance pilot responsible for searching and tracking Allied bombers over Germany. Due to Mutke’s capability on flying a plane, he was assigned to be trained as a jet pilot flying Messerschmitt 262.

On April 9, 1945, Hans Guido Mutke was flying a Messerschmitt 262 jet fighter (world’s first operational jet-powered fighter aircraft). Messerschmitt 262 was the first jet plane formed in quantity for warfare.He may be considered as the first person to travel faster than the speed of sound while flying through Austria. When the jet-powered fighter aircraft was climbing through at an altitude of 12,000 m or 36,000 ft., experiencing a perfect weather with a visibility of over 100km, Oberstleutnant Heinz Bar, Mutke’s chief instructor detected that there is a plane approaching, the American long-range, single-seat fighter and fighter-bomber, the P-51 Mustang.

Mutke and the chief instructor dive into a full engine power. The Me 262 started to vibrate and swing from left to right while passing through the altitude of 12,000 m. The controls stopped to function normally.The speedometer was fastened against his normal speed. The shaking of the plane deepened. He shortly lost control of the jet-powered fighter aircraft. After a short while, he was able to restore the unmanageable drive by adjusting the main tailplane incidence angle.  After a few minutes, the problem resumed, and the aircraft began to rattle and shake intensely again. He landed strenuously. After the strenuous landing, it was found out that his plane was missing many rivets and at the same time, the plane’s wings are distorted and damaged.

This incident cost him his place in the squadron, during this time, all pilots are ordered not to exceed 950 km/h. It was claimed that Hans Guido Mutke broke the sound barrier.
