Product Description

The P-59 "Airacomet", built by Bell, was America's first jet-propelled airplane. The project was conducted in secret, with Bell building the airplane and General Electric the engine. The first P-59 was completed in mid-1942 and on October 1, 1942, it made its initial flight at Muroc Dry Lake (now Edwards Air Force Base), California. One year later, the airplane was ordered into production.

Bell produced 66 P-59's. Although the airplane's performance was not spectacular and it never got into combat, the P-59 provided invaluable data for the development of higher performance jet airplanes.
