Carranza1 Nery Carranza Professor Rogers Writing 2E 2/6/07 The Power of Engine Plane Airplanes have been around the world for some time now, but have not upgrade so far since the 1990’s. Humans have been flying airplanes since 1900s when Samuel Pierpont Langley built the first successful flying model. Airplanes are all over the world and are being used for transportation, war, and work. The first plane was made in the late 1899 by Wright brothers. Airplanes are used for war, mail, transportation around the world. There are airplanes with turbojet engines and others with just normal engines. The different types of engines help jet planes to fly faster or help heavy airplanes which have a lot of weight to stay in the air. Dr. Hans von Ohain and Sir Frank Whittle are both recognized for making the jet engine. Hans von Ohain is considered the designer of the first turbojet engine. Frank Whittle was the first to inventory an official document for the turbojet engine in 1930. Hans von Ohain was approved a government grant for his turbojet engine in 1936. Nevertheless, Hans von Ohain's jet was the first to fly in 1939 and Frank Whittle's jet first flew in 1941. This is how the first turbo jet came to work and making the airplane faster. The turbojet is part of the plane that makes it go forward and faster than any other plane that has no turbo jet engines. How this works is that turbojet sucks in air and compresses and then gases flow through the turbine making it spin. Making the gases bounce back and shoot out of the rear of the exhaust, pushing the aircraft frontward.
