He flew Jabo missions along with fighter sweeps, adding seven American and RAF aircraft to his score. In November II./JG 3 was retrained to fly the Me 262 and became I./JG 7. Waldmann claimed two Mustangs on the Me 262. On 18MAR45 JG 7 was ordered to intercept American bombers raiding Germany despite heavy cloud cover. Waldmann collided with one of his wingmen in the clouds and was killed.
