This just in……………Doug.
This is a video of the first US jet, way back in October 1942.
It is a classic piece of film I certainly never knew existed. I wasn’t even aware that America HAD a jet that early in the war: 10 months after Pearl Harbor! America’s first jet flight, Oct 1942.
THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE PIECE OF AVIATION HISTORY.
Update: A late audit reveals, this post is the 500th on this blog. So the honor goes to Doug.
