Jet Age charts the invention and influence of the jet engine and jet planes, civil and military - and the enormous effect they have had on our lives. Since the Second World War, the world has shrunk and travel has been revolutionised. Once faraway countries, cultures and peoples are now familiar from holidays and business rips. Bombers capable of raising cities to the ground can reach another continent in hours. Plans can reach over double the speed of sound, and aviation represents one of the biggest driving forces in the global economy. In short, a British invention has changed the world forever, and this is the story of how.
