Synopsis:

On 27 August, 1939, just four days before the outbreak of World War II, a slender, unconventional research airplane designated the Heinkel 178 took off from Marienhe Airfield in Germany to make the first successful flight of a turbojet aircraft. The event, although hardly noticed at the time, marked the dawn of a new age in aerial warfare.The dramatic views on these and the following pages, painted by some of the world's leading aviation artists, depict highlights in the 40-year evolution of this awesome weapon.
