The First Jet Fighter, German, WagnerThe First Jet Aircraft

Wagner. A detailed analysis of jet aircraft design and development in Germany from the first drawing board projects to late war jet engine production. Carried on under utmost secrecy, and despite a lack of raw materials and Allied bombing, marvelous new age aircraft took to the skies, too late to make a difference in the outcome of the war. 260 pgs., 260 photos, 8"x 11", hdbd.

The First Jet Pilot, Erich WarsitzThe First Jet Pilot

The Story of German Test Pilot Erich Warsitz.

Warsitz. This book examines the fascinating life of pioneering German test pilot Erich Warsitz, who, in 1939, became the first man to fly both a jet-powered aircraft (the Heinkel He 178) and a liquid fuel rocket-powered aircraft (the He 176). You'll read about the birth of the jet age, Warsitz's work with legendary designers such as Wernher von Braun and Ernst Heinkel, and much more. 176 pages, B&W photographs, 6"x 9", hardcover.

On 27 August 1939, Flugkapitan Erich Warsitz became the first man to fly a jet aircraft, the Heinkel He 178 and in June of the same year he flew the first liquid-fuel rocket aircraft, the Heinkel He 176. His legendary flying skills enabled him to assist the pioneering German aircraft and engine design teams that included Wernher von Braun and Ernst Heinkel. He repeatedly risked his life extending the frontiers of aviation in speed, altitude and techlogy and survived many life-threatening incidents.This book is written by Erich's son who has used his father's copious tes and log books that explain vividly the then halcyon days of German aviation history. Warsitz was feted by the Reich's senior military figures such as Milch, Udet and Lucht and even Hitler keenly followed his experimental flying. Little is kwn of this pioneer period because of the strict secrecy which shrouded the whole project - it is a fascinating story that tells of the birth of the jet age and flight as we kw it today. The book includes many unseen photographs and diagrams.

The Jet Race and the Second World War

Pavelec. In the 1930s, the German military buildup caught Britain and America off-guard, particularly in aviation technology. This analysis captures the excitement of the high-stakes race to develop effective jet engines for warfare and their development through the end of World War II, from the first turbojet engine designed by Hans von Ohain in 1939 through the Gloster Pioneer and Meteor, the The Jet Race and the Second World War, Pavelec, German MilitaryBell Airacomet, and beyond. 248 pages, 6"x 9", softcover.

Between 1935 and 1945, the Germans, British, and Americans all raced to see who could develop jet engines first and best, in order to gain the technological edge in the air war and beyond.

The story of the World War 2 'jet race', in which the Germans, British and Americans competed to gain the technological edge in the air war and beyond.

This book outlines the competing jet programs during World War II that took place in Britain, Germany, and the US. The British program was hampered by inconsistent government interest, and little real need, the US program to develop a jet also lagged because of strategic concern. In Germany, the need for the technology existed, the innovative spirit of several designers, and official funding combined to produce a combat-operational jet aircraft despite wartime limitations. Analyzing a variety of primary and secondary materials, this book provides a comprehensive comparison of the three (ultimately) successful jet programs of the war. However, only the Germans, even in defeat, committed jet aircraft to combat operations. Between 1935 and 1945, the Germans, British, and Americans all raced to see who could develop jet engines first and best, in order to gain the technological edge in the air war and beyond. In the 1930s, as nations braced for war, the German military build up caught Britain and the United States off-guard, particularly in aviation technology. The unending quest for speed resulted in the need for radical alternatives to piston engines. In Germany, Dr. Hans von Ohain was the first to complete a flight-worthy turbojet engine for aircraft. It was installed in a Heinkel-designed aircraft, and the Germans began the jet age on August 27, 1939. The Germans led the jet race throughout the war and were the first to produce jet aircraft for combat operations. In England, the doggedly determined Frank Whittle also developed a turbojet engine, but without the support enjoyed by his German counterpart. The British came second in the jet race when Whittle's engine powered the Gloster Pioneer on May 15, 1941. The Whittle-Gloster relationship continued and produced the only Allied combat jet aircraft during the war, the Meteor, which was relegated to Home Defense in Britain.In America, General Electric copied the Whittle designs, and Bell Aircraft contracted to build the first American jet plane. On October 1, 1942, a lackluster performance from the Bell Airacomet, ushered in the American jet age. The Yanks forged ahead, and had numerous engine and airframe programs in development by the end of the war. But, the Germans did it right and did it first, while the Allies lagged throughout the war, only rising to technological prominence on the ashes of the German defeat. Pavelec's analysis of the jet race uncovers all the excitement in the high-stakes race to develop effective jet engines for warfare and transport.

In addition to being the first to prove that smoking caused cancer, Nazi scientists also perfected the hi-fi recording equipment that allowed the F�hrer to contaminate the entire country of Germany with his infectious, diabolical philosophy, and helped to perfect the very first jet-powered warplanes. And while the Third Reich would ultimately crumble, much of the technology they conceived is still being used in the 21st Century.

HI-TECH HITLER explores the manifold engineering and scientific accomplishments of the Nazis many of which helped to radically transform the way we live today. When Hitler came to power Germany was one of the world's most technologically advanced nations. In the midst of carrying out the atrocities of the Holocaust the soldiers who made up Hitler's murderous regime were also charged with furthering Germany's foothold in the fields of science and technology. Under the leadership of the F++hrer Nazi scientists were the first to establish a direct link between smoking and cancer. In an attempt to boost Nazi propaganda broadcasts Hitler exploited the discovery of hi-fi recording equipment. Finally it was during Hitler's time that the very first jet-powered fighter plane flew fully equipped with the first pilot ejection seat. Now in this intriguing program find out how and why so many positive advancements emerged from so much horror and track the ongoing influence of both the feats and failures of the Third Reich. From jet power to the electron microscope HISTORY presents a distinctive look at the role of science and technology in Hitler's Germany.

A Fascinating collection of photos of experimental and prototype planes of the Luftwaffe, this title reveals plans for jet planes and high altitude aircraft, and radar-equipped fighters configured to deliver chemical weapons. It is a revelatory insight into the aviation science of the Third Reich.

From jet planes and high altitude aircraft to radar-equipped fighters configured to deliver chemical weapons, numerous Luftwaffe planes were designed and reached prototype stage but never made it into mass production or battle. Luftwaffe X Planes is a definitive, revelatory guide to the remarkable range of secret planes that the Third Reich failed to complete.Despite the Allied authorities ban on research, countless aircraft were designed and tested by the Luftwaffe and German manufacturers before World War II. The research went ahead at secret evaluation sites in Germany, Switzerland, Sweden and the USSR. After the outbreak of the war this work continued. Many projects remained on the drawing board or at prototype stage because either they were deemed unsuitable or, as is the case with most of those in this selection, the developers simply ran out of time and the projects never went into production.Renowned aviation expert Manfred Griehl has painstakingly assembled a valuable selection of images which shows the remarkable range of projects dreamed up by the German designers. Had these innovative projects ever been realized the course of the World War II could have been dramatically different."

Information on this unique craft was not available until now. Complete facts and figures, development data and photos, plus comparisons with other Luftwaffe fighters. 200 photos, 208 pgs., 8"x 11", hdbd.

The P1101 was Messerschmitt's second jet aircraft after the Me 262. Designed as a fighter, the test version of this type was to serve as an experimental aircraft to test the swept wing concept. After World War II, the P1101 was brought to the U.S.A. and served there, among other things, as a testbed for the similar developments. Photos and data of this astonishing, yet understandably unkwn aircraft with its futuristic techlogy are rare. This new book is a comprehensive documention. where t only the development history with all the important data concerning the P1101 is gathered, but also photos, detailed facts and figures about this aircraft. Of particular te are the numerous tabular comparisons with similar German and foreign aircraft from the war and post-war era. While there are innumerable German technical publications about well-kwn, mass-produced Messerschmitt aircraft, the authors have been successful with this book in supplementing these works with the portrayal of the last almost completed Messerschmitt aircraft. Willy Radinger and Walter Schick are also the authors of Messerschmitt Me 262: Development/Testing/Production (available from Schiffer Publishing Ltd.).

In the summer of 1944, the prototype of the Ju 287 V1, a four-engine jet bomber with forward swept wings, took to the skies over Leipzig-Brandis and made history with its unusual design. This book reveals the striking craft through previously unpublished reports, photographs and drawings, examining not only its specifics but also its contributions to future jet aircraft designs in both the East and the West.

The extraordinary Junkers Ju 287, the first truly swept-winged, jet-powered aircraft, took to the sky in August 1944, at a time when Germany was suffering sustained round-the-clock bombing by the Allied air forces. Despite such adverse development conditions, this large and futuristic aircraft represented a remarkable accomplishment in aeronautical design. It featured a revolutionary swept forward wing and was built largely from scavenged components from other aircraft. The project was considered ‘top secret’ and evaded Allied intelligence for many months.

Conceived as the Luftwaffe's last desperate effort of WWII, the He 162A was a  German experimental concept known as the Volksjäger, or People's Fighter, because  it could be inexpensively mass produced.

He P.1077 (Julia)
The "Julia" was a rocket-propelled fighter with four solid fuel rockets to assist its vertical takeoff and skids on its undercarriage for landing. The pilot lay prone with spartan instrumentation in the cockpit.  One of Germany's most intriguing experimental fighters. While never operational, it was clearly a revolutionary idea.

He P.1077 (Romeo)  

This version of the P.1077 would have been almost entirely different from the Julia   because it was to be powered by a pulse jet and the pilot was to be seated in an  upright position.  One of Germany's most  intriguing experimental fighters. While never operational, it was clearly a  revolutionary idea.

 

The Bachem Ba 349 Natter 
The semi-expendable, not suicide, vertically-launched, piloted rocket plane was designed to meet an Allied bomber formation and launch rockets at it, only to then come around for a ramming attack. Although a modified version of the original design was built and put in service, none of these rocket aircraft saw action. 

The small interceptor was designed by a team headed by Erich Bachem. The Ba 349 was built using bonded and screwed wooden parts, a simple metal structure and an armored cockpit. The heart and soul of the aircraft was the internal Walter 109-509A-2 liquid fuel rocket that was also used in Me 163 Comet.

In October 1944 pilotless tests from near-vertical ramp and piloted gliding flights were started. On 28 February 1945 the first manned flight was attempted, resulting in the death of test pilot Oberleutnant Lothar Siebert when the cockpit canopy flew off, and the Ba 349 crashed. .
