 sociology - World War II
World War II was a global conflict that started in 7 July 1937 in Asia and 1 September 1939 in Europe and lasted until 1945, involving the majority of the world's states and every inhabited continent.
On which date the war began is also debated, cited as either the German invasion of Poland on 1 September 1939, the Japanese invasion of China on 7 July 1937 (the start of the Second Sino-Japanese War), or earlier yet the 1931 Japanese invasion of Manchuria.
The Jet aircraft age began during the war with the development of the Heinkel He 178 the first true turbojet, the Messerschmitt 262 - the first jet in combat, and the Gloster Meteor the first reliable and useful jet fighter.

 Fighter aircraft Summary
A fighter aircraft is a military aircraft designed primarily for attacking other aircraft, as opposed to a bomber, which is designed to attack ground targets, primarily by dropping bombs.
Modern jet fighters are predominantly powered by one or two turbofan engines, armed primarily with missiles, and equipped with a radar as the primary method of target acquisition.
The McDonnell F-4 Phantom II was designed as a pure interceptor for the United States Navy, but became a highly successful multi-role aircraft for the Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps as well as many other nations.

 Stealth aircraft Summary
However, these aircraft and the cutting-edge technology involved in their design are the culmination of a process that began during World War I. That war's top fliers understood the importance of spotting the enemy first and attacking before being detected.
Stealth aircraft such as the F-117 and B-2 bomber are not supersonic, they have no afterburners, and the exhaust nozzles are tuned for low noise rather than peak performance, making them difficult to detect via sound waves.
Whilst the first stealth aircraft may be said to include the Horten Ho 229 and the British Avro Vulcan strategic bomber, which had astonishingly small radar cross section in the 1960s, the first-generation of modern, purpose-designed stealth aircraft include the F-117 Nighthawk and the MBB Lamypridae [1].

With the world speed record smashed by the Heinkel He 100 and shortly after by the Me 209 it was clear that no matter how much power a piston-engine plane possessed it could only approach the speed of sound, an entirely new method of propulsion would be needed to achieve greater performance.
The Jumo jet engines had a life-time of only ten hours mainly due to the use of steel instead of rare metals (such as chromium) which would have stood up better to the extremely high temperatures of the turbo-jet but were very scare.
From their first appearance at the end of World War II to the most advanced planes of today, this is a thrilling look at the history of fighter jets.
