World War Engineers and Scientists (part three)

I felt it only fitting that we put the best part last, in my mind at least – Sir Frank Whittle, a brilliant man and THE father of the modern jet engine. I am in awe and will always remain so at the brilliance and perseverance of Sir Frank Whittle. I doubt that there is anybody alive that hasn’t tried to figure out how a jet engine worked, how an aircraft can fly from one part of the world to the next without what looks like at first glance as having no moving parts and yes, with one tank of fuel.
