JET Fighters

JET Fighters
Sir Frank Whittle and Hans von Ohain are both recognized as being inventors of the jet engine, each worked separately.

Frank Whittle was the first to register a patent for the jet engine.
Hans von Ohain is considered the designer of the first operational turbojet engine.

WWII: Germany produced various glide bombs (the first smart bombs) , the V-1 flying bomb (which was the first cruise missile weapon) and the first ballistic missile weapon, (the V-2 rocket) .

1930:  Sir Frank Whittle of England patents his design for a gas turbine for jet propulsion.

1936:  Hans von Ohian and Max Hahn of Germany develop and patent

their own jet design.

1939:  In August, the company Ernst Heinkel Aircraft flies the first gas turbine jet plane, the HE-178.

1941:  Sir Frank Whittle designs the successful Gloster Meteor turbojet.

1942:  Dr. Franz Anselm develops the Junkers Jumo 004 an axial-flow turbojet, used in the Messerschmitt Me 262, the world?s first operational jet fighter.

COMPRESSOR:  The compressor is the center of the jet engine. It is composed of a series of spinning blades that suck air through an inlet and compress the air. It is then passed on to the combustion chamber in which it is burned.

COMBUSTION CHAMBER:  The part of a jet engine where high pressure

air from the compressor is mixed with fuel and is then burned.

CORE:  The high- pressure section of the jet engine. It is comprised of the high-pressure compressor, the combustion chamber and the turbine.

STAGE:  The name given to the row of blades in a jet engine.

TURBINE:  The machine that drives the compressor. It runs on the hot gases that rush from the combustor.

AFTERBURNER:  A device which doubles the power of a fighter engine. Fuel is sprayed into the exhaust duct and mixed with the hot air blown back by the engine. It is then ignited, producing a powerful “blow torch” which rushes out of the nozzle at the rear of the exhaust.

 Arch rival to the U.S. F-86 in Korea
—called the "aircraft-soldier" by Russian pilots, the MiG-15 was exceptionally strong. The aircraft is still respected for its speed, maneuverability and firepower; advantages that made it a worthy adversary of the North American F-86 during the Korean War. ...
