Description:

"I want a thousand Whittles!" Those are the orders of one Winston Churchill after first seeing a jet-powered airplane in action. It tears over his head at 400 mph, a good 50 mph more than the fastest fighter planes in the the Royal Air Force (RAF). Whittle is credited with inventing the first jet engine.
