by ASME.org

The 1930s saw the development of the turbojet engine, and its first flight was completed just prior to the beginning of World War II. Three engineers—Ernest Heinkel and Hans von Ohain in Germany, and Frank Whittle in the United Kingdom—were each independently designing a turbojet engine prototype.

The turbojet not only changed air combat forever but also the course of the war. Test your knowledge on the initial turbojet engine design and the engineers that brought it to life.
