Great InventionsJet Engines

How do you manage to generate the thrust necessary to keep a plane in the air without one of the engines exploding due to the amount of heat generated? The solution was to use ten combustion chambers instead of just one big one. This was the idea of Sir Frank Whittle, inventor of the jet engine. Initially used by the military in jet fighters, after World War II jet aircraft enabled millions of people to travel the world. Great Inventions takes a very special flight through the history of aviation.
