He saw one readying for take-off so he circled the field in an orbit that brought him to the -262's six as the plane lifted off. He nailed it about 50ft AGL, so he didn't violate the ROE that prohibited shooting one on the ground.
I'm pretty sure more than one Me-262 was downed in air to air combat. Did you mean Yeager's only Me-262 kill?
