The coming of the jets( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The jet has brought revolutionary changes to the way we see the world. But as so often with technological advances, the early inventions came from military demands. Jets were flying in combat before the end of the Second World War. Yet early types like the Messerschmitt Me 262 and Lockheed P-80 Shooting Star could barely reach speeds of 550 miles per hour, well below that of sound. If the Wright brothers' epic first flight off Kill Devil Hill, North Carolina, in 1903 is aviation's greatest milestone, the development of the jet aircraft will surely be the next
