AMERICA'S FIRST JET AIRCRAFT -- Bell P59A

This is a video of the first US jet ‘way back in Oct 1942.







It is a classic piece of film I certainly never knew existed. I wasn’t even aware that America HAD a jet that early in the war: 10 months after Pearl Harbor !







You will enjoy this great clip of history.







America 's first jet flight, Oct 1942.







THIS IS AN INCREDIBLE PIECE OF AVIATION HISTORY.







This is a very interesting little piece of historical film. It covers America 's entry into the Jet Age with the Bell P59A.
