While the later models were hazardous to land and take off due to the tendency to swing and ground loop, there is little evidence that the fatality rate for it's pilots in accidents was anything near as bad as your claim suggests.the Me 109 has the dubious distinction of having killed more German pilots than the enemy

It was the powered Me 163 Komet which managed to kill more of its own pilots than enemy pilots.
