Frank Whittle - Drive

  • In this month: April 1937 - First ground test of Whittle’s jet engine


    The speed of the modern world would not exist or function without the jet engine. That might be a bold statement, but it’s a justifiable one. The jet is perhaps one of the last century’s greatest inventions, and it came from the mind of Coventry-born genius Frank - later Sir Frank - Whittle.
