Auto Credit Based on MAHADI's WWII Jets Challenge! (CLOSED)

The First Turbojet Fighter Aircraft In The World

Description from Wiki

Full Wiki Article click here

The Heinkel He 280 was the first turbojet-powered fighter aircraft in the world. It was inspired by Ernst Heinkel's emphasis on research into high-speed flight and built on the company's experience with the He 178 jet prototype. A combination of technical and political factors led to it being passed over in favor of the Messerschmitt Me 262. Only nine were built and none reached operational status.

    I just tried it in a crash landing test in the water and if it flip it could easily become a boat. 😁

    It is very hard to land on mobile at least for me maybe the slowing down mechanic could use some work

    This isn't a bad build. Shaping is good, flies just fast enough, pitch control is good and smooth. I didn't like how slippery and over sensitive the roll response is though. Overall it's nice. :)

    @Hedero The Heinkel 178 if I recall the configuration was a single-engine turbojet in the fuselage, rather than the twin engine in pods style of the 280. Both jets had the same razorback spine, so appearance wise they were quite alike there. The 178 also didn't have the twin tails.
    .
    I'm just going off memory since I'm too lazy to look it up lol.
