If you really want amusement about the history of the jet engine check up
the answer to the following:
Four countries were working on jet engine development during the second
world war.
UK,US,Germany being the obvious 3 ... who was the 4th?
Which of the 4 was 1st to have a jet plane fly?
Which countries had production jets in service before the end of the war?

Why were the patent rights to the jet engine given for free to the US
denying Frank Whittle a well-deserved retirement income?
