Summary
The jet engine is one of the greatest inventions of the 20th century. It changed the face of our planet and now permits 1.5 billion air passenger journeys a year. In WHITTLE: THE JET PIONEER, the true story of Sir Frank Whittle, the aviator and engineer who invented the jet engine, is told in dramatic style by Sir Frank Whittle himself against the backdrop of WWII and a race against the Nazis for air superiority. Hailed as the father of jet propulsion, Whittle invented every form of gas turbine jet engine we know today. WHITTLE: THE JET PIONEER includes exclusive interviews with veteran test pilot Captain Eric Brown and German jet pioneer Hans von Ohain. Their accounts are mixed with fantastic wartime color archive images of Whittle's first jet planes and more in a powerful and inspiring story filled with dramatic elements. The film was produced originally for broadcast on History Channel U.K.
