The first aircraft designed as a jet fighter, and also the first twin-engined jet aircraft, was the German Heinkel He 280. The first prototype, the 280V-1, was first flown on 2 April 1941 powered by two Heinkel HeS 8 turbojets, each developing approximately 1102 1b static thrust. Maximum level speed of the He 280V-5, with HeS 8A engines of 1650 lb static thrust, was demonstrated to be 510 mph at 19 680 ft. It did not achieve production status, being abandoned in favor of the Messerschmitt Me 262.

Viewing: Professional wind tunnel

Professional wind tunnel

Plans to construct your own professional wind tunnel. Designed by NASA Low cost project (can be built for less then US$250.00) This was designed to produce a steady airflow with no turbulence in the testing area. Designed to test scale model/s of your airfoil, fuselage, canopy etc.
—did you know… the traditional scale for kit models: 1:144 1:100 1:72 1:48 1:32 1:24 (1/144 1/100 1/72 1/48 1/32 1/24) 
With 1/48 and 1/72 being the most popular for aircraft.

Very quick download time - no problems and it was easy to extract the files. I've just had a quick look at this stage but there seems to be complete documentation. I definately intend to build one so I'll post results of the build as it happens. Worthwhile project by the look of it!
