Bell Aerospace P-59 AIRACACOMET
by Steve Pace

The Airacomet was the first jet aircraft built for the US Military.

As a fighter, the P-59 died in infancy without the opportunity to prove its worth, overtaken by progress for which the P-59 itself had become a symbol. Yet as America's first jet-powered airplane, its legacy lives on in the annals of aviation history.
