The jet engine was designed by British engineering genius Sir Frank Whittle (1907–1996). His son Ian is a patron of Jet Age Museum.

Britain’s first jet plane, the Gloster E28/39, powered by Whittle’s revolutionary invention, first left the ground on 8 April 1941 at the Gloster factory-airfield between Gloucester and Cheltenham.

Its official first flight was at RAF Cranwell, Lincolnshire, on 15 May 1941.

The original aeroplane can be seen in London’s Science Museum. Jet Age Museum volunteers have built a full-size replica which is proudly on display.

Other Gloster-built aircraft are currently on view, such as examples of Britain’s first jet fighter, the Meteor, and the Cold War-era Javelin and a fully-detailed reproduction 1925 Gamecock biplane.
