The first flight of the H.IX V2 or Ho 229 V2 was made in Oranienburg on 2 February 1945. The test pilot was Leutnant Erwin Ziller.
The H.IX V2 reportedly displayed very good handling qualities, with only moderate lateral instability. While the second flight was equally successful, the undercarriage was damaged by a heavy landing caused by Ziller deploying the brake parachute too early during his landing approach. There are reports that during one of these test flights, the H.IX V2 undertook a simulated “dog-fight” with a Messerschmitt Me 262 and that the H.IX V2 outperformed it. However, the Me 262 was considered by many as unsuitable for fighter missions, being slow in turning. Additionally, pilots and aiming devices had not yet adapted to the speed of jet aircraft, forcing pilots to slow their airplanes to accurately fire at bombers, leaving them momentarily at the reach of Allied gunmen.
Two weeks later, on 18 February 1945, disaster struck during the third test flight. Ziller took off without any problems to perform a series of flight tests. After about 45 minutes, at an altitude of around 800 m, one of the Jumo 004 turbojet engines developed a problem, caught fire and stopped. Ziller was seen to put the aircraft into a dive and pull up several times in an attempt to restart the engine and save the precious prototype. Ziller undertook a series of four complete turns at 20° angle of bank. Ziller did not use his radio or eject from the aircraft. He may already have been unconscious as a result of the fumes from the burning engine. The aircraft crashed just outside the boundary of the airfield. Ziller was thrown from the aircraft on impact and died from his injuries two weeks later. The prototype aircraft was completely destroyed.
