I have noted in my reading (ORB, Combat Reports, Intelligence Reports) and accounts from pilots that when attacked by, or attacking, an Me262 in a Spit the method was generally to turn to face them head-on, which sounds logical as a chase would have been pointless due to the Me262's superior speed.

Can anyone confirm whether this was an official tactic that was taught to the pilots, or whether it was passed on, gained from experience, or potentially point me in the direction of a source for an answer to my query?

Thanks
Steve
