3D Models of Jet Aircraft on Flatpyramid.
A jet aircraft is an aircraft powered by an air-jet engine (a turbojet engine, a ramjet engine, a pulsating air-jet engine etc.) or a rocket engine. Such planes form the basis of modern military and civil aviation.
In 1910, the engineer from Henry Coanda created and tested a Coanda-1910 aircraft with a piston engine, instead of a propeller, which set in motion the simplest blade compressor. Later, after the end of the Second World War and the widespread introduction of engines, the designer claimed that the installation he created was a motor-compressor air-jet engine, which went against his original publications and patent applications (not in the source). From the design of the aircraft shown in the photograph, it is obvious that with the engine located in front of the wooden fuselage and the unprotected pilot cockpit (however, there are cylinders in the photo in front of the pilot cockpit, which rules burning the fuel in the air stream behind the compressor, the plane and the pilot would be instantly destroyed by a powerful fire. According to A. Coanda, the flow of hot gases really burned the tail of the aircraft in the first flight. For comparison, planes of the 1940s, in which the jet stream touched the skin, for example, MiG-9 and Yak-15, had an all-metal design and additional thermal protection in the form of sheets of heat-resistant alloys, and the effect of hot gases on the pilot was completely excluded relative position of the cabin and engines.
