Aviation Classics Luftwaffe - Secret jets of the Third Reich

Welcome to Aviation Classics, a new series of high-quality glossy publications centred on the world’s greatest aircraft, the events in which they played crucial roles and those who flew, maintained and supported them. We begin with the Avro Lancaster, a type held in high regard by Bomber Command aircrew and an aircraft still admired by so many. The sight and sound of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight’s PA474 flying around the country will turn anyone’s head, and can bring a tear to the eye of those with a personal connection as it brings back emotional memories of fallen comrades and family. Over 55,000 Bomber Command aircrew didn't return home and many more were physically and mentally scarred. Ground crew, too, lost their lives with their efforts to keep the aircraft flying.

preface

The story of the aerial battles of the Second World War and the aircraft used during those battles has, for the most part, been very well known for a very long time. Until the early 1990s however, few in the English speaking world, including myself, gave much thought to aircraft designed during the war that never saw service – either because they were flawed or simply because the circumstances did not allow it.Having been brought up on tales of Spitfires and Hurricanes defending Britain from the Messerschmitt menace, it came as a surprise to me in 1991 when George Lucas’s LucasFilm Games brought out a videogame called Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe for the PC. The image on the cover showed a pair of flying wing aircraft – they looked…

development overdrive germany’s second world war jets – an introduction

A wind tunnel model of the Lippisch Delta VI that was painted up, photographed and set against a ‘sky scene’ for promotional purposes during early 1944. The Delta VI was typical of advanced projects being dreamt up by Germany’s aircraft designers during the final year of the Second World War. (TNA) With the introduction of the de Havilland Mosquito, the Allies had a means of overflying Germany with near-impunity to take reconnaissance photos. Developing an interceptor that could catch the powerful and high-flying British aircraft was a high priority in 1944. (via author) Much of German aircraft manufacturers’ design and development effort from late 1943 onwards was devoted to finding a way of combatting the increasingly effective USAAF daylight raids over Germany. (NARA)Development of the jet engine in Germany…

the first contest jagdflugzeuge mit strahltriebwerk (january 1939)

Heinkel got a head start in the jet race by hiring young inventor Hans Joachim Pabst von Ohain who had begun theoretical work on gas turbine powerplants in 1933, aged just 22. (via author)Hans Joachim Pabst von Ohain began theoretical work on gas turbine propulsion in 1933 aged 22, unaware that similar research had been started by Frank Whittle in Britain three years earlier.The following year, Dr Herbert Wagner of Junkers undertook some private research into the possibility of a turboprop engine and thereby began work on his own independent turbojet design. The following year, he was made his company’s head of special developments and started examining design features for a transatlantic airliner.Von Ohain’s turbojet received a German patent on November 9, 1935, and the first model of it…
