Gloster Whittle Replica, England's first Jet


Farnborough, United Kingdom (GB)
Replica of the UK's first Jet flying in 1941.

In 1946, the first prototype (Serial W4041) was placed in the Science Museum in Central London, where it is still exhibited. A full-size replica has been placed on an obelisk on a roundabout near the northern perimeter of Farnborough airfield in Hampshire as a memorial to Sir Frank Whittle. A similar full-size model is on display in the middle of a roundabout at Lutterworth in Leicestershire (pictured below) where the aircraft's engine was produced.
