Father of the jet engines

Coventry, England, United Kingdom
24 Kudos
I didn't know until my visit to Coventry who Frank Whittle was and I am kind of ashamed of admitting this fact to everyone. Frank Whittle is a British inventor of the jet engines. So in fact we should be crediting him every time we get into the airplane or any other vehicle. There is a monument dedicated to him right next to museum of transportation. If you look up you will see an arch, called Whittle arch, dedicated to his accomplishments in development of aviation. I am always excited to learn a new name or fact . It was nice to learn about him even before we got into museum.
