May 8th 1944: Hellcats, yes I said Hellcats, flying off the HMS Emperor encountered a mixed bag of 109s and 190s.
Two 109s and a single 190 were shot down. No Hellcats were lost.

Also the last combat between British naval fighters and German fighters involved 109s and the F4Fs of 882 Squadron.
Four 109s fell to 0 F4Fs.

Just something I came across

The one with the Hellcats took place off the coast of Norway.

The other one I don't know.

The book is Me-109 by Martin Caidin
